Syrian army restores security to 400 sq/km of lands in northwestern Damascus
The army engaged in a six-week-long battle with al-Nusra in Wadi al-Bardi and drove terrorists out of all villages and towns in the region, restoring security to over 400sq/km of territories in Western Ghouta, West of Damascus province.
Meantime, a field source said that terrorists inflicted major damage on Ein al-Fijeh water facilities. "The al-Nusra has deliberately destroyed parts of the water facilitates in Ein al-Fijeh to put the Syrian army under pressure and incite people to revolt against the government."
Damascus Governor General Ala Ibrahim said earlier today that over 40 buses evacuated over 2,000 militants and their family members from Wadi al-Bardi region in Western Ghouta.
Ibrahim said that over 2,150 militants and their family members left Wadi al-Bardi region for militant-held regions in Idlib, adding those militants that had applied for government pardoning have received amnesty.
He went on to say that simultaneous with the evacuation of militants, water facilities in the village of Ein al-Fijeh were fixed and drinking water was pumped to citizens in Damascus.
Meantime, the Arabic language Elam al-Harbi news website reported that evacuation operation of the militants from Wadi al-Bardi has been terminated and evacuation of 200 more militants in al-Jaroud region and also another 250 in Sarqaya region has been delayed due to snowy weather; "but they will leave their regions for Idlib in next few days".
