Syrian Army Makes Fresh Advances in Damascus Countryside
The Syrian government troops managed to purge terrorists from the construction battalion of a strategic airbase in Eastern Ghouta after five hours of clashes.
The army units and popular forces also drove out terrorists from farms near the town of Darayya in Western Ghouta on Tuesday.
Meantime, the Syrian army launched fresh operations to seize back Beit Naim and al-Mohammadiya towns in Damascus countryside.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Syrian soldiers and their popular allies, in a new round of joint offensives, drove the terrorist groups back from five large farms in Western Ghouta.
The Syrian government forces struck the terrorist groups’ positions in the Southern axis of the town of Darayya and forced the militants to pull force back from the region.
The terrorist groups suffered a heavy death toll and their military hardware sustained major damage in the attacks.
The army men were busy in fortifying their positions in the newly-liberated farms.
On Monday, the Syrian Army troops and their popular allies drove the terrorist groups back from the Southern part of Eastern Ghouta and completed their control over different villages and towns in the region.
“After hours of non-stop battle with the terrorists of Faylaq al-Rahman and Jeish al-Festat, the pro-government forces captured the town of Bala, the last base of the terrorist groups in Eastern Ghouta, and pushed towards the Southern part of Eastern Ghouta, driving the militants back from Zabdean, Deir al-Assafir, Bzineh, Haroush, al-Admal, al-Ruqabiyeh farms, al-Bayadh farms and Nouleh,” the sources said.
“The militant groups suffered a heavy death toll and their military hardware sustained major damage in the government forces’ operation,” they further added.
