DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their large-scale offensive in the West Ghouta region of rural Damascus on Wednesday, striking the jihadist rebel defenses at the farms located to the east of Khan Al-Sheih.

Led by the 4th Mechanized and 7th Armored divisions, the Syrian Arab Army managed to seize more than 400 meters of territory at the Al-Bayda Farms, advancing westward as they inch closer to the strategic town of Khan Al-Sheih.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Armed Forces resumed their assault at Khan Al-Sheih after the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham refused to surrender the town to the government.

With winter quickly approaching, the jihadist rebels will find themselves stuck in a difficult situation at Khan Al-Sheih because the entire town is encircled by the Syrian Arab Army.

Okay, Fadel, enough. Everything is ‘key’ and ‘strategic’ with you. These words have actual static meanings. Your constant misuse of them renders readers completely incapable of telling when something is actually important, or when it’s just another random inconsequential hovel.
