On March 15, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies liberated the village of Hamuriyah in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta from members of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and Faylaq al-Rahman.

The liberation of Hamuriyah allowed the SAA to open a new humanitarian corridor there. Over 12,500 civilians were evacuated from Hamuriyah and nearby areas.

Additionally, the SAA once again re-established control over the village of al-Rayhanah east of the town of Douma controlled by Jaish al-Islam.

On March 16, the SAA advanced on the village of Saqba and launched another attempt to establish control over the village of Jisreen.

On March 15 and March 16, the Turkish Armed Forces and the Free Syrian Army captured over 20 villages from the Kurdish People’s Protection Units in the area of Afrin. The TAF and the FSA are working to capture the remaining YPG-held area north and northeast of the city. However, the southern road out of Afrin remains open.

A U.S. HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter reportedly crashed in the western Iraqi province of Anbar on March 15. According to media reports, the helicopter was carrying seven persons on board. All of them reportedly died. The U.S. Central Command officially confirmed the incident but provided no details about the helicopter type and the alleged casualties. The investigation is ongoing.

  1. This is good news. What will be the next fake pretext the outlaws U.S. and Israel will use to illegally occupy and attack and invade the sovereign nation of Syria all for the unstated criminal purpose of stealing resources and land and control.
    Both outlaw countries U.S. and Israel should be sanctioned and prosecuted by the UN and even thrown out of the UN. Every other country would be better off without these two bully criminals in their midst. Outlaw America is in Syria totally illegally today period and Syria and Russia would be fully justified to bomb the U.S. out right now without warning. In fact that would be the only kind of language this international outlaw bully might understand.
