Syrian Army, Allies Tightening Noose on Terrorists in Khan Al-Sheih

3 November 2016 15:41



The Syrian army troops continued operations to reestablish security in regions near the capital city of Damascus and seized back new regions in Western Ghouta.

“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.
