Syrian Army forces have managed to continue their advances against terrorists in Wadi al-Bardi in Western Ghouta and retook a strategic road in the region.
The forces purged the road between the village of Basimeh and Ein al-Fijeh village after hours of non-stop clashes.
Backed by artillery and missile units, the Syrian army troops intensified their raids on terrorist centers and were able to drive militants out of their position along the Basimeh-Ein al-Fijeh road, cutting off terrorists' movement in these two villages.
More than 20 terrorists were killed or injured during the attacks, Fars news agency reported on Wednesday.
In another development, militants in seven villages in Wadi al-Bardi region in Western Ghouta agreed to surrender their arms and join the nationwide reconciliation plan.
A field source revealed that militants in the villages of Souq Wadi al-Bardi, al-Barhaliyeh, Kafr al-Awamid, al-Hosseiniyeh, Kafr al-Zeit and Deir Moqren agreed to lay down arms and join the peace process with the Syrian Army.
“Residents of villages in Wadi al-Bard region have put terrorists under pressure to accept peace to end hostilities in Wadi al-Bardi and reopen flow of drinking water to Damascus,” the source said.
“The noose will be tightened on the militants of Fatah al-Sham Front (previously known as the al-Nusra Front) that have opposed reconciliation.”
