The Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division, backed by the Republican Guard, began a new military operation inside war-torn Darayya that targeted the central district of this key town in the West Ghouta.
An Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus City reported that the Syrian Armed Forces began their assault by firing a dozen missiles towards Darayya’s central district, paving the way for a new government advance.
Heavy clashes are ongoing at the moment; furthermore, the Islamist rebels of Ainad Al-Sham are on the verge of retreating to the Darayya Association Quarter, as the Syrian Army presses their positions.
Prior to tonight’s offensive, the Syrian Armed Forces were limited to military operations inside the Al-Alaya District, which is located at the southern axis of Darayya.
The Syrian Arab Army’s High command is attempting to force Ajnad Al-Sham to reconcile with the government in order to avoid anymore casualties from the battle of Darayya.
