The sources said that the army men clashed fiercely with Al-Nusra in Southwestern Damascus and seized full control of the strategic Bardaya hills Northeast of Beit Jinn Farm.
They added that Al-Nusra suffered heavy casualties in the attack and pulled back the remaining pockets of its forces from the battlefield in order to evade more casualties.
Military sources confirmed on Wednesday that the army stormed again the strongholds of the Al-Nusra Front in Southwestern Damascus, coming closer to the terrorists’ largest bastion in the region.
The sources said that the army soldiers clashed fiercely with Al-Nusra terrorists close to Bardaya hill and managed to seize control over the Eastern direction of the hill covering a region from Northeast of Beit Jinn farm up to the Southwest of the village of Kafr Hoor.
A large number of Al-Nusra fighters were killed and their military equipment was destroyed in the attack, they said.
The sources went on to say that the Bardaya hill is of paramount importance and its capture by the army will enable the government forces to access Beit Jinn farm that is one of the largest bastions of Al-Nusra in Western Ghouta.
In the meantime, the Al-Nusra’s missile and artillery units targeted army positions in Tal al-Sha’ar region in Eastern Quneitra to back up their comrades in Beit Jinn and slow down the army’s advances in the region.
