A group of terrorist attacked one of the Syrian Arab Army’s checkpoints in the Al Khayateen area, killing 6 soldiers before they could respond to the militant aggression.
As a result of this surprise attack by the terrorists, the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command sent in Syrian Republican Guard units to recapture the Al-Khayateen area; this would result in a violent battle that would last for several hours on Tuesday.
Finally, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to surround the 2 terrorist groups at 2 buildings inside the Al-Khayateen area. Al-Khayateen was eventually recaptured by the Syrian Armed Forces, and the Republican Guard and their tanks have remained inside Qudsiyah.
The Syrian Armed Forces issued one last warning to the terrorisrs about instigating violence in Qudsiyah; if they do it again, the army will attack their positions inside the suburb.
