DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:05 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) renewed their large-scale offensive in the West Ghouta on Thursday morning, targeting the key town of Deir Khabyeh after taking a short hiatus to regroup for their successful operations near Khan Al-Sheih.

Led by the 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Armed Forces began their assault yesterday, capturing the remaining farms outside the town’s western flank.

Following the seizure of these farms, the Syrian Armed Forces turned their attention to the strategic Air Battalion Base that is located directly west of Deir Khabiyeh; it would captured shortly after they launched their attack on this imperative military installation.

With the town surrounded at two different flanks, the Syrian Armed Forces managed to break-through Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham’s (formerly Al-Nusra Front) final line of defense and impose full control over Deir Khabiyeh this morning.

As a result of their success this morning, the Syrian Armed Forces have now turned their attention to the strategic town of Khan Al-Sheih, which is located north of Deir Khabiyeh.
