DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:10 P.M.) – Moments ago, the Syrian Army declared Hawsh Asha’ari and Hawsh Qubaybat towns completely under control following fierce battles against Islamist militants.

The offensive launched by government troops continues with artillery units targeting the nearby Afris town to the west.

With the longtime rebel-held enclave almost split into two parts, it is a matter of time before the government troops meet up at the Amy Vehicle Base in Harasta.

“We are roughly 1 km from literally cut the enclave into halves”, a military commander said.

Meanwhile, civilians in several East Ghouta towns took the street, calling on militants to leave their towns in order to hand it over to the Syrian government.
