The Syrian forces also regained full control of Qara town in the strategic al-Qalamoun area on the outskirts of the capital Damascus.
The foreign-backed militants use Qalamoun to enter Syria from Lebanon.
On Monday, the Syrian troops stormed the militants’ hideouts and killed scores of them in the Damascus countryside.
A large number of militants were also killed by the Syrian soldiers near Aleppo’s central prison.
Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies -- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey -- are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and a total of 7.8 million others displaced due to the violence.
The UN also says more than four million other Syrians will be forced out of their homes in 2014 by the escalating conflict in the country.
Two million Syrians are expected to take refuge outside the country while 2.25 million others are predicted to be internally displaced in the next year.
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told reporters after the meeting that the Obama administration believes a preliminary deal with Iran may be at hand.
“They are very explicit about what they think they may be able to achieve,” Corker said.
Members of Congress in both parties have been somewhat skeptical toward the nuclear talks.
On Tuesday, lawmakers in both the House and Senate sent the administration bipartisan letters urging President Obama to adopt a tougher stance with Iran when negotiators meet again on Wednesday.
“We feel strongly that any easing of sanctions along the lines that [the international community] is reportedly considering should require Iran to roll back its nuclear program more significantly than now envisioned,” six senators wrote in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry.
The letter, signed by Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), Bob Casey (D-Penn.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), urges US negotiators to demand that Iran suspend all uranium enrichment and reprocessing activities.
911 was a staged event as were the London subway bombings of 7-7-2005. My approach is to point out that what the media says happened could not have happened. I try to avoid going into endless debates about the trivia. What is important to me is the conclusion: Israel did 911, the 7-7 bombings and assassinated JFK, RFK and MLK Jr. My goal is to have the guilty parties arrested. I leave the intricate details of the crimes to the prosecutors and the police. I am here to demand arrests and a change of government. Hopefully, that will give us a change of direction.
Israel has been turning American into a Psychiatric Police State with fake mental classifications and powerful mind altering drugs that greatly damage our young people and tear the traditional American society apart beginning with the family. Israel has been using fluoride and other additives to the water to lower IQs and to increase cancer. Israel also promoted Bromide in food because it is in the same chemical group as fluoride and both replace iodine. They have also phased iodine out of the food. This lowers IQ, increases weight gain and creates both metabolic disorders and cancers. Israel did the same to the Soviet Union.
While there has been a ‘steady increase’ in the number of graduates in the UK population since 1992, nearly half of recent UK graduates are stuck in low-skill jobs, according to new research from the Office of National Statistics (ONS).
47 percent of recent graduates were in non-graduate jobs between April and June this year. A decade ago, similar data showed that a mere 36 percent of graduates held lower-skill jobs, and even in 2008, only 39 percent of recent graduates were in undergraduate jobs, according to the ONS.
The statistics are stoking fears the country is seeing a ‘massive waste’ of talent, while education is simultaneously becoming increasingly expensive for the young.
Mayor Gianni Giovannelli said houses across the area had been left half-submerged by the floods and rescuers were still searching for possible victims. 'We've just found a dead child we had been searching all night for,' he told SkyTG24 television.
JFK, RFK and MLK were all killed by the same forces ~ link ~ As was JFK, Jr., his wife and sister-in-law! Stirling
Let’s sum up the “official” position of the establishment. The three most prominent assassinations of the 20th century were carried out against high-profile political targets. And according to the establishment elite, all of the assassinations were the individual acts of one man with an unstable mental health background and extremist political views. Further, all the assassins possessed a diary which professes their murderous intentions towards their individual target, and just coincidentally, the diary was discovered and used to implicate the single assassin notion in each case. And let’s not forget that in two of the three assassinations involving John Kennedy and Martin Luther King, expert marksmanship was displayed. In fact, in the case of Oswald, nobody has been able to duplicate the accuracy and speed of which the assassination had to be carried out in 5.6 seconds. Don’t you wish that MIT would run the odds on these probabilities being due to chance.
Fifty years later following the death of John Kennedy and 45 years after the death of Robert Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King, some of the older folks in this country still seek answers. Why in 2013 is assassination evidence still being held under lock and key and the American people are not allowed to look at it? What is the establishment afraid that we might learn? And more disturbingly, why don’t more Americans care? For when we let a few men, behind-the-scenes, commit a coup d’état against three high level political figures, especially the President of the United States, and subsequently change policy in case of John Kennedy, we no longer live in a democratic republic. We now live in a corporate oligarchy.
When these events are allowed to go on and the true perpetrators remain unpunished and the evidence is carefully concealed decades after the events, then what we are left with is a Praetorian Guard who runs the government for behind-the-scenes committing assassinations, rigging elections and by bribing politicians with undue corporate influence and gratuity. Add in the control of the media and we live in a prison country. This is why you should care and this is why it’s disgraceful that more of the alternative media is not covering these events and more Americans don’t give a damn about what happened to these three men and why they were assassinated.

Comet ISON puts on its greatest display yet - But it may be about to explode ~ link ~ The ‘comet of the century’, Comet ISON, is now visible to the naked eye- but catch it while you can, as some experts believe it won't be there for long. There have been reported sighting of 'wings' coming from the comet, which may suggest that its centre has already broken up. However, Karl Battams, blogging on Nasa's Comet ISON Observing Campaign, believes there are other possibilities.
