DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) capitalized on the crumbling defenses of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) today, striking the latter’s positions at the small village of Al-Buwaydah in the West Ghouta region of rural Damascus.

Led by the 4th Mechanized and 7th Armored divisions, the Syrian Arab Army managed to overrun Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham’s defenses at Al-Buwaydah, resulting in the complete seizure of this villages and its neighboring farms.

As a result of today’s advance, the Syrian Armed Forces are now at the northern entrance of Khan Al-Sheih, leaving Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham in serious trouble as they no longer possess a buffer-zone around the aforementioned town.

Today’s advance by the Syrian Armed Forces comes just hours after the jihadist rebels attempted to launch their own offensive to lift the siege on Khan Al-Sheih.
