Syrian Soldiers Hunting Terrorists in Newly-Captured Village in Northwestern Damascus
The army men that took full control of the entire village of Basimeh in Wadi al-Bardi, are now carrying out sweeping operations to clear Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) and booby-trapped bombs planted by militants and meantime hunt the rest of militants in the village.
The army soldiers are also providing security for the civilians in the village of Busujima, providing urgent humanitarian assistance to them.
Reports indicated that the militants are also retreating from Ein al-Khazra and Ein al-Feija in the Wadi al-Bardi region.
Reports said earlier today that the army launched another powerful assault on the positions of Fatah al-Sham Front (previously known as the al-Nusra Front) in the Wadi al-Bardi, taking control over a key village in Western Ghouta.
The army soldiers broke-through Fatah al-Sham’s defense lines on Thursday, seizing the villages of Basimeh after a violent battle with the militants.
With Basimeh under their control, the army reached the gates of the al-Fijah Springs, marking the first time in several years that the government has had any presence at the site.
Once the Syrian Army ends the operation with success, they will be in a position to fix the facilities at the reservoirs and return water to the estimated 5 million civilians in the capital city and Greater Damascus area.
