Syrian Army, Allies Tightening Noose on Terrorists in Khan Al-Sheih
“After heavy clashes with the terrorists which killed and wounded dozens of them, the Syrian pro-government forces seized control of more regions near Khan al-Sheih,” a military source said on Thursday.
“The army and its allies continued their operations to liberate Khan al-Sheih and regained control over 3 sq/km of nearby farms in al-Buwaizeh in the Southeastern parts of Damascus and tightened the noose on the terrorists,” he added.
Noting that the final stage of operations to free Khan al-Sheih will start soon, the source said that the army soldiers could also defuse the militants’ attempts to break the siege, and destroyed a tank and several military vehicles of the terrorists at the gates of Khan al-Sheih town.
The Syrian army completed the siege of the terrorist-held town of Khan al-Sheih in late October.
Syrian Army soldiers seized control over several key positions and roads in Western Ghouta and laid full siege on the trapped Fatah al-Sham Front (the al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) in Khan al-Sheih town last Saturday.
Syrian government forces captured an air defense base, the entire farms in the Northwest of Khan al-Sheih town and Southwest of the town of al-Zakiyeh and found fire control over al-Zakiyeh-Khan al-Sheih road, completing the siege of Fatah al-Sham terrorists in the town of Khan al-Sheih.
“The entire supply roads to Khan al-Sheih are blocked by the Syrian army soldiers and Fatah al-Sham militants have no way out of the town. They are trapped in the circle of government forces,” military sources said Saturday.
