AMMAN – The Syrian army escalated aerial bombing of a rebel-held valley northwest of Damascus in an offensive begun last week to recapture the strategic area where a major spring provides most of the capital’s water supplies, rebels and residents said on Tuesday.


They said the army shelled and bombarded several towns in Wadi Barada valley about 18 km (11 miles) northwest of the capital in a major offensive launched since Friday. The roads leading to the towns in the valley and the mountain cliffs surrounding the area are under the control of elite Republic Guards and the Lebanese Shi’ite Hezbollah group, they said. 

Residents said fighting on Monday focused on Baseimeh village at the edge of the valley where the army and its allies are pushing to advance deeper in an enclave where 10 villages are inhabited by an estimated 100,000 people. 

The rebels said the army was emboldened by gaining full control of Aleppo city and was seeking to force them to either leave or face all out war.

This is an offensive attack to bomb rebels who have taken control of Damascus’s water supply. Aleppo is done…we told you that Damascus was next…stay tuned.


  1. So who is going to destroy Damascus? Israel? The US? I don’t see ISIS doing it… Unless Russia leaves and ISIS overruns the city. Then Russia might be forced to destroy Damascus from the air in order to destroy ISIS. Such a complicated situation but I am sure we will see the final outcome before long…
