Two days after cutting off the last road linking the Islamist rebels inside two important cities in the West Ghouta region of rural Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces – alongside the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Republican Guard – has begun the imperative siege of Darayya, striking several neighborhoods under the control of Ajnad Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group).
According to a military source in the Syrian capital of Damascus, the Syrian Armed Forces have already seized a number of building blocks near the 4 Seasons Hotel, while also advancing 200 meters west of the Masjid Bilal Al-Habshi in the Darayya Association District.
The Islamist rebels of Ajnad Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra are currently surrounded by the Syrian Armed Forces at both Darayya and Mo’adhimiyah, with no roads linking these two imperative cities together in order for the militants to exchange supplies and send reinforcements.
While the siege of Darayya begins, the Syrian Armed Forces have not committed to besieging the strategic city of Mo’adhimiyah just yet; this is due to the recent offer of a peaceful surrender from the Syrian Arab Army to the Islamist rebels of Ajnad Al-Sham and the Free Syrian Army – they have 4 days left to accept the terms.
