Militants Flee From Defense Lines As Govt Forces Advance In Northwestern Damascus

Donate

On December 28, the Syrian army and Hezbollah, backed up by the Syrian Air Force, continued to storm Jabhat Fatah al-Sham and Ahrar al-Sham defense lines in the Wadi Barda region northwest of Damascus.

Government forces attacked militant positions at the villages of Souq Wadi Barada, Kafr al-Awamid, al-Husyaniyah and Baseema and made a series of flanking raids against militant group supply lines in these areas.

As result of these attacks, the Syrian army and Hezbollah were able to enter Baseema and seize a number of buildings there. According to local sources, a part of the militants holding a defense line there just fled to Dayr Qanoon and Kafr Az Zayt, where no clashes were reported.

Pro-government sources argue that about 20 militants were killed in the operation. Nonetheless, this number cannot be confirmed independently.
