Mon Oct 3, 2016 15:21:01

42nd and 47th brigades of the Syrian Arab Army and 4th Mechanized Division, backed by the 7th Armored Division, launched a large scale offensive in the West Ghouta region of rural Damascus this weekend, targeting the strategic town of Deir Khabiyeh, which is under the control of the terrorists rebels.

According to field sources, the Syrian Armed Forces entered Deir Khabiyeh on Sunday after a fierce battle with the terrorists of Jabhat Fateh Al Sham (formerly Al Nusra Front) and Harakat Ahrar Al Sham (Ahrar Al Sham Movement).

The Syrian Armed Forces were reportedly able to enter Deir Khabiyeh after seizing more than 10km worth of territory around the aforementioned town; this left the terrorists rebels with their backs against the wall at the nearby village of Khan Al Sheih.

The Syrian Armed Forces have calmed their assault since sundown on Sunday; however, they are expected to resume their offensive in the coming hours as they prepare to retake Deir Khabiyeh from the terrorist rebels.
