The Syrian Arab Army broke-through Jabhat Fateh Al Sham's (formerly Al-Nusra Front) defenses at the outskirts of 'Ayn Al-Fijeh tonight after a long battle in the Wadi Barada area of rural Damascus.

Led by the 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Arab Army launched a powerful assault in Wadi Barada on Sunday evening after civilians were safely escorted from the area by the Syrian Red Crescent Society.

More than 1,300 residents of Wadi Barada were safely escorted from this contested town to the nearby village of Wadi Al-Rodah in the western Damascus on Sunday.

The residents will be transported by the Syrian Red Crescent Society from Wadi Al-Rodah to the Damascene suburbs of Qudsiyah this week.
