DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) restarted their large-scale offensive in the West Ghouta region of rural Damascus this week, after the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) rejected terms of surrender.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus, a government delegation met with the commanders of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham inside Khan Al-Sheih earlier this week; however, the negotiations went sour after the aforementioned jihadist group refused to leave the town.

With no peace agreement put in place, the Syrian Armed Forces decided to resume their military operations in the West Ghouta, targeting the farmland located just north of Khan Al-Sheih.

Since they resumed this offensive, the Syrian Armed Forces have captured most of Khan Al-Sheih’s northern outskirts, leaving only a small distance between their front-lines and the town.

The video footage above was released by Ruptly; it shows the Syrian Armed Forces restarting operations near Khan Al-Sheih.
