Syrian Army soldiers have completed the siege on several key roads in Western Ghouta on Monday and have taken full control on four militant-held towns in the region.

“The Syrian Army pushed back militants from the Western side of Damesh, a road connecting Maraneh to Deir al-Khabiyeh, a road connecting al-Moqibliyeh, al-Zakiyeh and Khan al-Sheih camp, surrounding the militant groups with a circle of government forces,” the sources said.

“Syrian military helicopters, for their part, have been targeting terrorist groups’ gatherings and centers in Deir al-Khabiyeh,” they added.

Meantime on Sunday, Syrian Army troops’ fresh round of anti-terrorism attacks in Western Ghouta pushed back militants from more positions in the Northern side of Khan al-Sheih, inflicting a heavy death toll on the terrorists.

“Syrian military forces stormed terrorists’ positions in the Northern side of Khan al-Sheih and took control over the neighborhood of al-A’azam mosque and several buildings in the town from the direction of Daroushe and Banayat al-Tah’touh,” the sources said; FNA reported.
