The government forces broke through Jabhat Fateh al Sham (formerly al Nusra Front) defenses at the outskirts of Ayn al Fijeh after a long battle in Wadi Barada area of rural Damascus.

The Syrian Arab Army launched a powerful assault in Wadi Barada on Sunday evening after civilians were safely escorted from the area by the Syrian Red Crescent Society. The Syrian Army’s entry into Ayn al Fijeh marks the first time in several years that the government forces have a presence inside this imperative located just north of the jihadist-controlled al Zabadani and Madaya towns.
