The Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are rolling through the East Ghouta countryside, capturing several villages and hilltops from the extremist rebel groups near the strategic town of Deir Al-‘Assafir.

On Thursday afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard – backed by Hezbollah, the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), and National Defense Forces (NDF) – imposed full control over the village of Nolah after a violent battle with Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) and Faylaq Al-Rahman.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus City, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah killed a confirmed 19 enemy combatants, while only losing 7 fighters of their own.

The village of Nolah was reportedly captured by the extremist rebel groups last year; it will now be the launching point for the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah to attack the remaining villages under Faylaq Al-Rahman’s control near Zibdeen.
