Report: Syrian army kills 175 rebels in ambush

Syrian army troops killed 175 rebel fighters in an ambush Wednesday south of Damascus, state media reported. The attack purportedly targeted Al-Qaeda-linked fighters as part of a government effort to secure the capital from rebel groups attempting to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad’s government.
The dawn attack by Assad’s forces in the opposition-held area of eastern Ghouta will likely push rebel groups further away from the capital. Damascus’ suburbs have been strongholds of the opposition since March 2011, when the revolt against Assad’s regime began.
If confirmed, the attack would be one of the deadliest known assaults by government forces against rebels in the area.
