yrian Army kills, wounds several terrorists while repelling an attack in west Damascus
Fierce battles erupted in Tal Barda’aya after rebels waged a counteroffensive aimed at dislodging loyalist presence in the strategic hill chain.
The government forces had secured the aforementioned hill after days of clashes and incessant preliminary shelling two days earlier. Whilst the rebel assault on the hill has not halted yet, all attacks so far have been repelled with a death toll on the insurgent side exceeding 15 with dozens wounded.
Unless rebel groups manage to reverse the gains of the elite 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division, their fate will resemble that of their counterparts in West Ghouta, Zabadani, Barada Valley, and Darayya.
