Watch | Syrian Army raises flag above newly liberated Saqba district in Eastern Ghouta
A video has been released by Syrian national media showing the moment that government troops raised the Syrian flag above the district of Saqba.
Saqba was seized by the Syrian Army from the control of terrorists not long ago this afternoon. Terrorists had held the district for many years.
Right now, Syrian forces continue their battle in the nearby suburb of Kafr Batna with the aim of capturing it before the day ends.
Sources say that militant snipers are the main obstacle to the Syrian Army’s attempt to advance in Kafr Batna.
