Syrian army pushes insurgents out of Damascus countryside ‎


Into the dangerous countryside of Damascus as we go, such a trip requires utmost caution and many precautions.

This area has been the scene of fierce clashes after insurgents targeted Syrian army posts. In videos uploaded to the internet, insurgents called it Al-Kisas Al-Adel battle. The Syrian army, however, quickly turned the table on them recapturing many locations and seizing or destroying their equipment.

The army is now in the midst of a large-scale operation in Adra area with the aim of surrounding insurgents-held areas in Douma and Harasta and preventing armed groups from reaching Damascus.

We can see Mayda’a — a village separating us from Alatibeh less than 4 or 5 km from the place we are standing right now and where other units are stationed and one can visualize how little is the area insurgents are moving in.

This part is crucial for the Syrian capital as it contains industrial complexes, powers station, grain silos and the free zone. Many of these locations recent became a battleground like this towering detergent factory. But Syrian troops regained the control over and now using it to keep an eye on the whole area.

The Syrian Army is on the lookout here for any insurgent movement, and whenever a move is detected the artillery is called in.

The vast area included in this military operation doesn’t seem to hinder the advancement of the Syrian Army in an operation that will change the situation in and outside of Damascus or the rest of the country. How successful is the army in accomplishing its objectives, remains to be seen.
