The Syrian Army troops backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) stormed the militant groups’ positions in the Southern side of one of the strategic cities in Western Ghouta and pushed the terrorists back from more lands.

The Syrian army’s Special Forces launched a new assault on the besieged city of Darayya from the city’s southern side, marking the first time this year that the government forces have made a push from the nearby city of Sahnaya.

The Syrian soldiers, backed up by the NDF, conducted a powerful assault on the Dureid Farms in Southern Darayya, killed 13 enemy combatants while advancing North along the Sahnaya-Darayya Road towards the city’s central district.
This new assault from the Southern flank means to tighten siege around the Ajnad al-Sham and Free Syrian Army (FSA) controlled only 30 percent of the neighborhoods of Darayya, with the intent of forcing them to surrender to the Syrian Armed Forces before they launch a full-scale assault.

The Syrian government forces have recently gained more ground against the  militant groups in the Eastern part of Damascus province.

Military sources said on Monday that Syrian army units have been pounding militants positions in Damascus province, inflicting heavy losses and damage on terrorist groups.

The sources said that the Syrian artillery units heavily hammered down the Takfiri militants' positions in the contested Eastern Damascus neighborhood of Jobar, destroying terrorists' military hardware and annihilating some of them.

Also on Monday, several militants fighting with terrorist organizations active in Eastern Ghouta were put to death in clashes with the Syrian Army and the popular forces in al-Ajmi area near the town of Harasta.

Meanwhile, the Takfiri militants sustained heavy casualties and huge damage on their hardware during the clashes that flared as Syrian soldiers has been trying to win back more areas in major Eastern Ghouta battlefields including Khabiya and al-Marj areas, military sources said, FNA reported.
