The Syrian Army troops and National Defense Forces stormed the terrorist groups’ strongholds in Eastern Ghouta and seized control over all the four directions of the key region of Zabdean after hours of intense battle, battlefield sources said.

“The Syrian government forces struck the militants deployed in Zabdean region from the Northern, Eastern and Western sides,” the sources said, adding, “The terrorists, who face the waves of storming soldiers from three directions decided to flee the region from the Southern side, but the army closed the Southern side too through capturing al-Ruqabiyeh farms.”

“Tens of the militants have been killed or wounded in Zabdean region and the remaining pockets of them are under the siege of the Syrian military forces,” they went on to say.

Syrian Army announced minutes ago that its troops and their popular allies continued to drive the terrorist groups back from more territories in Eastern Ghouta and cut off two main supply routes of the militants in the region after hours of tough battle.

“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.
