Darayya, Syria (6:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is officially in full control of Darayya after several buses filled with the remaining militants left this imperative town on the western outskirts of Damascus city.

According to a Syrian Arab Army officer in Darayya, the last buses departed from Darayya for Idlib a few minutes ago, leaving the entire town under government control or the first time since 2012.

With Darayya under government control, the Syrian Arab Army will be able to redeploy the 2,500 soldiers from the Republican Guard and 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division to another volatile front.

In the grand scheme of things, the loss of Darayya for the Islamist rebels will have an adverse effect on their other fronts in Damascus, as the Syrian Arab Army will have a surplus of soldiers and heavy weaponry to use in the West Ghouta.
