BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has been on a roll in the eastern countryside of the Rif Dimashq Governorte lately, capturing a significant portion of territory from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Islamic State (ISIL).

Led by the 5th Corps, the Syrian Arab Army resumed their offensive operations in the eastern countryside of Damascus, Saturday, targeting the Free Syrian Army’s positions at the village of Al-Aliyanyah.

Within two hours of launching this attack, the Syrian Arab Army managed to break-through the enemy defenses at the village, resulting in the subsequent capture of Al-Aliyanyah and its surrounding points.

As a result of Saturday’s operations, the Syrian Arab Army has secured the Damascus-Palmyra Highway, while also advancing along the strategic Damascus-Baghdad Highway.
