Syria: Army, NDF Cut off Last Supply Line of Terrorist Groups East of Damascus
“The Syrian government forces won back the small but strategic town of Bala al-Qadhima and actually divided the Eastern Ghouta into two separated Northern and Southern parts for the militants groups,” the sources said.
“Liberation of Bala al-Qadhima ended in the Syrian government forces’ full control over the Harasta al-Qantara-Bezineh road that was the only communication road between the Northern and Southern parts of Eastern Ghouta and was one of the oldest and most strategic supply routes of the terrorist groups in the Eastern part of Damascus province,” they further added.
“The Syrian army, in the recent week, has followed the strategy of cutting off the terrorist groups’ supply lines to face them shortage of ammunition and arms,” the sources said.
“The army in its last offensives had cut off the entire supply line of the terrorist groups in the region, including a road connecting two small town of Zebdin and Deir al-Asafir,” the sources added.
“The capture of Bala al-Qadhima will engage al-Nusra Front terrorists in the Northern part of Eastern Ghouta in the dire shortage of foodstuff , ammunition and arms coming from the Southern part,” they said.
In relevant developments in the province on Tuesday, Syrian Army troops engaged in fierce clashes with the ISIL terrorists in Eastern Qalamoun and forced the militants to retreat from their positions in the Eastern part of al-Dumeir airbase.
The Syrian soldiers’ offensives in the Northeastern part of the capital city of Damascus inflicted a heavy death toll on the ISIL and forced the terrorist group to pull the remaining pockets of its forces back from a battlefield near al-Thakneh al-Mahjoureh (abandoned garrison).
The army started to fortify its positions in the liberated region as soon as the ISIL left the battlefield.
