The Syrian army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) have libeated the village of Hazrama from Jaish al-Islam militants in the Eastern Ghouta region near the Syrian capital of Damascus.

Government forces had been already in control of about 50% of the village. However, on January 19, they got a full control of it. Then, the Syrian army and the NDF set a fire control over another militant-held village in the area: Nashabiyah.

There are little doubts that Nashabiyah will be the next target of the government advance. Local sources indicate that army and NDF troops are preparing for a push in this direction.

Earlier today reports appeared that Jaish al-Islam decided to participate in the Astana talks between the Syrian government and the so-called “opposition” brokered by Turkey and Russia. But this does not mean that the group can hope to avoid the government anti-terrorist operation in Eastern Ghouta until the talks are started.
