Al-Watan daily newspaper said that Syrian Army are expected to storm the militant's stronghold of Yabroud near the Lebanese border within hours
The paper quoted military sources as saying government troops were advancing quickly both on the outskirts and inside the Syrian town located in the Qalamoun region.
Syrian Army launched a sweeping military campaign last month on the Qalamoun region to cut off militant's supply routes from Lebanon.
Yabroud has been under the control of the opposition militants since early last year and has served as a major smuggling hub. It is also the town where a group of nuns abducted last month by militants groups in the historic Maaloula are said to be held
