The army forces, supported by the artillery and missile fire, engaged in clashes with al-Nusra terrorists South of Hawsh al-Zawaherah in Eastern Gouta during the Wednesday night operations after the daily ceasefire ended, regaining control of the air defense battalion region.
Meantime, field sources said that the Syrian army soldiers advanced towards the town of Otaya South of the air defense battalion after retaking control of the region.
They said that Hawsh al-Zawaherah is one of the most important defense lines of al-Nusra Front in Eastern Ghouta, adding that the region will be the start point for the army operations towards the depth of Ghouta, including Shifouniyeh and Regiment 274 regions.
In a relevant development, the Arabic-language Moraseloun news website had also reported on Wednesday that the army men deployed South of al-Eshara Battalion Base, backed up by the artillery and missile units, stormed the Al-Nusra strongholds and their allied terrorist groups in Eastern Ghouta on Tuesday night and captured Hawsh al-Zawaherah Farms after the daily ceasefire ended.
