Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army’s 63rd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division arrive to the Four Seasons Neighborhood of Darayya in order to begin what is likely the final push to capture this strategic city located in the West Ghouta (collection of farms) of rural Damascus.
According to an Al-Masdar media correspondent inside the city of Damascus, several soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have confirmed that they are making their final preparations before they launch the massive military operation to seize the city of Darayya from the Islamist rebels of Ajnad Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group).
Should the Syrian Armed Forces begin the final push to take Darayya in the coming days, they will likely launch their final assault from four strategic points, which will ultimately pin the remaining Islamist rebels down in the Darayya Association District and force them to either surrender or fight till the death.
The Islamist rebels control only 30 percent of city as of now; this is a dramatic change since October of 2015 when they were controlling more than half of Darayya and the main road leading from the aforementioned city to nearby Mo’adhimiyah.
West of Darayya, the Syrian Armed Forces have also surrounded the imperative city of Mo’adhimiyah, which will likely be the next target for the government forces.
