The Syrian Armed Forces began today early morning a full-scale offensive to recapture Hawsh al-Farah and Mayda’a deep in the Eastern Ghouta region.

The attack, backed by heavy airstrikes, was launched from two axes: Brigade 39 base and the Industrial area.

The blitz granted the government troops full control of the farmlands to the west of Hawsh al-Farah, thus cutting off the supply route leading to the rebel-held parts of neighboring Tal al-Sawwan.

A military source told Al-Masdar News that at least 14 militants were killed, some of them are minors under the age of 16.
