TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The captured border positions were located to the southeast of Damascus, the report said, according to Reuters.
It added that dozens of militants had been killed and wounded during the attack.
The report did not identify the insurgents or say when the positions had been captured.
Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various terrorist groups, including Daesh, currently controlling parts of it.
According to a report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people, injured 1.9 million others, and displaced nearly half of the country’s pre-war population of about 23 million within or beyond its borders.
