SANA – The Syrian Arab Army regained control over a number of farms near Jisreen town as part of the ongoing military operations to eradicate Jabhat al-Nusra and its affiliated groups from the Eastern Ghouta in Damascus Countryside.

SANA’s reporter in Ghouta said that the military operations are currently concentrated on the farms of Jisreen and the village of Aftris in the southeastern sector of Ghouta, which contributes to the tightening the grip on the terrorist groups positioned in the area, in addition to restoring control over the majority of the farms in the vicinity of the town of Jisreen after defeating the terrorists and inflicting heavy losses upon them.

The Army’s units also achieved new advances in chasing al-Nusra terrorists in the northern side of Aftris village amid massive collapse in their ranks as a result of the great progress of the army and the heavy losses the terrorists suffered during the recent battles, the reporter added.

Army units continue their operations to root out the terrorists in the central sector of the Eastern Ghouta in the direction of Madyra and Mesraba with the aim of cutting off the last supply routes between the north and south of the Ghouta in preparation for eradicating terrorists completely from the entire area.
