"The Syrian army has taken control of the strategically important settlement of Sinjar," the source said.

According to the source, in addition to Sinjar, terrorists were knocked out of four villages located nearby.

The settlement of Sinjar is considered strategically important since there was one of the important strongholds of the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham and it is located only 15 kilometers (9 miles) from Abu al-Duhur Military Airbase.

The Syrian civil war has been since 2011, with government forces fighting against both Syrian opposition groups, who strive to overthrow President Bashar Assad, and numerous extremist and terrorist groups such as Daesh and Jabhat Fatah al-Sham.
