Footage has been released showing pro-government forces in the town of Afra, in the Wadi Barada area. The video shows troops from the Syrian Army advancing into the town, and bombarding militants with artillery.

Approximately 1 month ago, opposition groups polluted the spring with diesel, cutting off water to around 5 million Syrians in Damascus. Pro-government forces have since intensified their efforts to liberate Wadi Barada and its surrounding areas, to restore water to the capital city.

I am very supportive of the SAA and the courage shown during the terrible war against US,Saudi, QATARI, NATO sponsors of Takfiri terrorism BUT I never cease to be dismayed at the lack of basic field craft and the bunching of SAA infantry in combat zones.

Only a few SAA units have proper field craft discipline and they are the most effective.

Ok – they move like a school class on vacation. But the militants lack of field craft is so obvious that I even see it. ROFL. BTW. US, Turkey, France and UK are AFAIK the only sponsors of terrorist regime change in NATO.

Están completamente rodeados los terroristas, no tienen escapatoria por tanto no debe haber negociación alguna con estos criminales.
