Syrian Army Troops Win Back Key Industrial Site in Western Damascus



Syrian military forces carried out fresh rounds of attacks on the positions of Fatah al-Sham Front (the newly-formed al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) in Western Ghouta and captured an important steel factory.

Syrian army soldiers, after hours of non-stop clashes, captured the Milano Steel factory near al-Moqeilibiyeh town, along with all the nearby farms and blocks.

The Syrian army’s engineering units are now defusing a large number of explosive traps planted by Fatah al-Sham in the region.

Reports said earlier today that Syrian military forces stormed the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) positions in a small but key town in Western Ghouta after militants violated the peace agreement with Syrian government.

“The FSA and it allies refused to retreat from agreed points in Elhamah,” the sources said, and added, “In response to these violations, the Syrian Armed Forces stormed these points in Elhamah, resulting in a fierce battle with the militants.

Fierce clashes are still ongoing, as the Syrian soldiers are resolved to drive out militants from Elhameh, according to the sources.
