The Syrian Arab Army raised the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic over the Al-Fijah Springs on Saturday, marking the first time in 4 years that this site has been under government control

The jihadist rebels captured the Wadi Barada area in 2013 after a surprise attack on this water rich part of western Damascus; this marked the beginning of their reign over the Al-Fijah Springs.

Since then, the jihadist rebels have periodically obstructed the water flow to Damascus, punishing the estimated 5 million civilians for remaining to live under the Syrian government’s protection.

Technicians are actively working to repair the Al-Fijah Springs and restore the water supply to the people of Damascus; however, sporadic rockets fired by militants continue to disrupt their work.
