DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is rolling in the West Ghouta region of rural Damascus after launching a surprise attack on Friday at the key town of Khan Al-Sheih.

Led by the 4th Mechanized and 7th Armored divisions, the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture the Air Defense Base that is located at the outskirts of Khan Al-Sheih after a fierce battle with Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front).

As a result of their advance on Friday, the Syrian Armed Forces have fully encircled Khan Al-Sheih, forcing the remaining militants to head back to the town in order to strengthen their defenses.

According to a military source in Damascus, the jihadists have sent a peace delegation to the front-lines in order to negotiate a possible surrender of Khan Al-Sheih in the coming days.

FInish this and free up a few thousand troops, nice, nice. What next with said troops, Beit Saber to the west? Would be good to clear all of the smaller bubbles before massing and taking out the bigger ones like Eastern Ghouta, Homs etc.
