DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:45 P.M.) – Another mass grave was discovered by the Syrian Army in the Daraa province after rebels were entirely defeated last month.
The newly-unearthed mass grave – located near the town of Da’el – contains the remnants of some 51 Syrian Army troops.
The fallen soldiers were killed while defending the Air Defese Battalion which was taken over by rebel forces in March 2013.
An alliance of insurgent factions launched a massive assault on the air base; massacring all troops in a bloody carnage.
The Syrian government is intensifying efforts to find more mass graves in order to recover bodies of fallen soldiers.
Hundreds of troops were slaughtered when rebels stormed Army positions across the southern province during the last 7 years.
