BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has taken full control of ‘Ayn Khadar in the Wadi Barada area after launching a powerful attack last night to expel the remaining jihadists from the area.

Initially, the Syrian Arab Army controlled a little over three quarters of ‘Ayn Khadar after the militants reentered the village on Friday; however, the assassination of Brigadier General Ahmad Ghadban on Saturday  by the jihadist rebels put an end to peace talks.

In addition to their advance at ‘Ayn Khadar, the Syrian Arab Army also cleared the area around Bassima village, forcing Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham to retreat to Wadi Barada village.

The Syrian Arab Army does not plan to halt their military operations anymore after Brigadier General Ahmad Ghadban’s murder; they will also not send a peace envoy to the front-lines due to security concerns.

Principle of the Hudaybiyyah treaty : very 1st jihadists signed a 10 years peace treaty with the town. After 2 years, they estimated they became more powerful, attacked and took the town…

No mas negociaciones ni treguas, el asesinato del Gral negociador es prueba que los mal llamados rebeldes moderados siempre serán terroristas, no respetan los acuerdos y me doy cuenta que el gobierno Sirio y Ruso pierden tiempo negociando y trasladando a Idlib, por tanto que acabe con todos estos criminales en la zona y el ejercito Sirio se fortalecerá animosamente.

Time to teach a lesson… no survivors, including any foreign military advisers

“The Syrian Arab Army does not plan to halt their military operations anymore after Brigadier General Ahmad Ghadban’s murder”

Yes, you cannot trust those who would be so cruel as to deprive entire cities from water. They are pure war criminals. Reducing their numbers will be best in the long run too.
And how are the repairs going? How long will it take to get the water completely restored?
