The Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division, backed by the Republican Guard, captured all of the remaining farms inside the strategic town of Darayya on Tuesday, leaving the Islamist rebels of Ajnad Al-Sham with their backs against the wall near Damascus.

Last week, the Syrian Armed Forces were in control of half of Darayya; however, as of Wednesday, they now control 65 percent of this key Islamic town in the West Ghouta region of Greater Damascus.

With their situation becoming dire in Darayya, the Islamist rebels of Ajnad Al-Sham will likely try to sue for peace in order to avoid another major push by the Syrian Armed Forces inside of the town.

The Syrian Armed Forces will likely accept a ceasefire that resembles the Mu’adhimiyah Al-Sham; this town was reconciled in April after nearly four years of non-stop fighting between the government and opposition groups.

The agreement at Mu’adhimiyah Al-Sham allowed the rebels to remain inside the town and receive aid from the government.

In return, the government was given control of the town and given a promise from the opposition groups that they would turn in their heavy weapons.
