Syrian government forces have librated a militant-held territory near the capital Damascus, says a UK-based monitoring group.

According to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, militants were pushed from the territory, which is located close to the town of Hosh al-Fara in the capital’s East Ghouta region on Wednesday.

A  farming area was captured from the militants to the east of the town.

The Observatory also noted that the retaken areas were in the hands of the so-called Jaish al-Islam terrorist group, which is in control of most of Eastern Ghouta.

Meanwhile, the Syrian army announced that it has cut off all supply routes to the militant-held eastern parts of the embattled city of Aleppo.

A couple of days ago the Syrian Army cut off the main supply route of terrorists from Castillo to Eastern districts of the city, but this time and after recent advances in Northern Aleppo, even infiltration passages of the terrorists have come under full monitoring of the Syrian army.

Reports said earlier today that Syrian Army troops and National Defense Forces launch a new round of attacks on the terrorist groups' positions in al-Khalediyeh neighborhood and pushed the militants back from several building blocks in the Northern countryside of Aleppo.
