DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale offensive in the West Ghouta region of rural Damascus on Saturday, targeting the farms outside the strategic town of Khan Al-Sheih.

Led by the 4th and 7th division, the Syrian Arab Army’s advanced from the recently captured Al-Buwaydah Farms to southwestern perimeter of Khan Al-Sheih, where they encountered fierce resistance from Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front).

Under the cover airstrikes, the Syrian Armed Forces managed to break-through Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham’s front-lines, resulting in the capture of the entire southwestern axis of Khan Al-Sheih.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Air Force played an integral role in Saturday’s advance, as their relentless airstrikes destroyed at least three armored vehicles that possessed ATGMs (anti-tank guided missiles).

The Syrian Armed Forces renewed this large-scale in the West Ghouta region on Friday; this will be the government’s top priority for the coming days as they continue to negotiate with Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) in the East Ghouta.
