BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their military oeprations in the Wadi Barada area of rural Damascus on Friday after taking control of the Al-Fijah Springs from the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front).

Led by the 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and Qalamoun Shield, the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture the village of ‘Ayn Khadra from the jihadist rebels after another fierce battle on Friday afternoon.

Following the Syrian Arab Army’s capture of ‘Ayn Khadra, the jihadist rebels launched a swift counter-attack to reclaim the territory they lost earlier in the day.

Syrian opposition activists claim they have recovered all of the territory they lost to the Syrian Arab Army on Friday; however, this still remains unconfirmed at the moment.
