The Syrian Arab Army has made remarkable progress in the West Ghouta region of rural Damascus today, capturing several farms en route to the key town of Khan Al-Sheih.


Led by the 7th Armored Division and 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture most of the farms between Deir Khabiyah and Al-Maqlibiyah after a fierce battle with Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.


As a result of this advance, the Syrian Armed Forces cutoff the key supply route to the Takfiri-controlled town of Khan Al-Sheih in southwest Damascus.


According to a military source, the Syrian Armed Forces killed the top commander of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham in Khan Sheih this afternoon: ‘Abdel-Hamid ‘Awad.


‘Awad was the commander of the Bayarq Al-Islam Brigade in Khan Al-Sheih, which is one of the largest units in Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.
