BEIRUT, LEBANON (00:58 A.M.) – As Al-Masdar News reported on Thursday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) backed by allied forces, managed to regain control of the strategic Dakwah hilltop after a round of fierce clashes with the US-backed and FSA-affiliated rebel factions.

Located some 60 km to the east of Damascus at a height of 920 meters, the Dakwa hilltop served as a major bastion for the Islamic State (ISIS), but then was taken over by FSA-affiliated factions, when ISIS jihadists were forced to withdraw at the beginning of the year.

Despite repeated warnings and several US air raids against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in south-east Syria, the government forces keep up their offensive efforts and score ever more gains in the desert area both against the Islamic State and groups in allegiance with the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

The footage below was published by the Syrian Ministry of Defence and shows the SAA targeting and storming FSA held positions on the hill with mechanized troops and infantry charging against the enemy lines:
