Moments ago, the Syrian Forces successfully managed to recaptured the last rebel-held town before completely splitting the insurgent enclave.
Islamist rebels in the town of Madira – located along the Mesraba-Harasta road – collapsed under the heavy artillery shelling and airstrikes, as well as the intensified ground invasion.
With Madira recaptured, the Army units advancing from both the eastern and western parts have finally met up at the Army Vehicle Base in Harasta.
Pictures shown on a state-run TV channel show parts of the recently-restored town.
