The Hezbollah media wing in Syria has released a video confirming that the key town of Muhammadiyah in the Eastern Ghouta region, near Damascus, is now under control of government forces.
Separately, the Syrian Army and its allies have relaunched their effort to retake the town of Rayhan in the northeastern part of the militant-held area. Intense fighting is now ongoing there.
Earlier on March 6, the Russian military offered militants a safe passage out of Eastern Ghouta. However, local militant groups rejected the offer triggering further military operations in the area.
