Syria’s state media said Monday that Syrian government troops regained full control of the strategic al-Khalidieh district of the central province of Homs.

The army unleashed a wide-scale offensive last Saturday against the strategic district, which is one of the few districts left under the rebels’ control in the Homs province.

The Syrian government troops have focused most of its efforts to secure Homs province.

Its latest important gain was the recapturing of the city of al-Qussair on the borders with Lebanon last month.
