Syrian Army, Popular Forces Capture More Lands in Damascus
The Syrian army troops, the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) imposed full control over the important village of al-Fadiyaya near the Marj al-Sultan Military Airport after a violent battle with Jeish al-Islam and al-Nusra Front terrorist groups.
The village of al-Fadiyaya is located directly North of the Marj al-Sultan Military Airport; its capture has preserved the safety of the airbase’s Northern side and its strategic helicopter airfields that have been the target of enemy mortar shells and rockets recently.
On Saturday, the Syrian army scored more victories against the militants in Western Ghouta, Damascus countryside, and seized back more lands after hours of heavy fighting against the militants.
The Syrian army pushed the militant groups back from their positions in the Eastern side of the city of Darayya and retook full control over at least 20 more residential building blocks near Kaziyeh Shmit on the axis of al-Ghariyeh al-Saghireh.
The militant groups left behind several dead or wounded member and fled the battlefield to find safer positions.
