Syrian Army Cuts off Two Main Supply Lines of Terrorists East of Damascus
“The Syrian army repelled attacks of Jeish al-Islam on the government forces’ positions near Nouleh, Zabdean and the Sothern side of Deir al-Assafir, which ended in the killing of at least 34 militants and wounding of several more,” the sources said, adding, “In the meantime, the Syrian military forces pushed the terrorist groups back from the residential areas in surroundings of Katibeh Bala and cut the communication line of the terrorists between Zabdean and Bala.”
“After repelling the attacks of the terrorist groups, the Syrian army stormed the militants’ lines of defense and retook the farms in the Southwestern part of Nouleh,” the sources went on to say.
“The army, meanwhile, stormed strongholds of the terrorist groups and cut off another supply line of them connecting al-Ruqabiyeh farms to the axis of Deir al-Assafir,” the sources said.
Earlier reports said that the Syrian Army troops, the Lebanese Hezbollah and the National Defense Forces continued to drive the terrorist groups of al-Nusra Front and Faylaq al-Rahman back from more territories in Eastern Ghouta after hours of clashes.
The terrorist groups withdrew from their more positions in Bala farms near Marj al-Sultan military airport under the heavy attacks of the Syrian government forces.
The terrorist groups suffered a heavy death toll and their military vehicle sustained major damage in the attacks.
The Syrian Air Force, for its part, targeted the terrorist groups’ lines of defense near the town of Deir al-Assafir, which claimed the lives of several militants.
