BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army has officially taken control of the Al-Fijeh Springs of Wadi Barada after more than 4 weeks of fighting with the jihadist rebels in this rural Damascus valley.

Syrian TV reported directly from the Al-Fijeh Springs today, showing images of the Syrian Arab Army raising the flag over this strategic site that is responsible for supply water to an estimated 5 million people in Damascus.

With the Syrian Army in control of Wadi Barada, the remaining jihadist rebels will be transferred to the Idlib Governorate, where they will be reacquainted with their comrades.

The water supply to Damascus was cutoff 44 days ago when the jihadist rebels poisoned the water supplied to government areas in the capital.

As a result of this act committed by the jihadist rebels, the Syrian Arab Army launched a powerful assault to recapture the Wadi Barada area after a 4 year absence.
