    The Syrian government forces established control over the Der Khabeyah village in Damascus province 10 miles southwest of the capital, a field commander told Sputnik on Friday.

    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — The source said a battle over the liberation of the village in Western Ghouta led to the deaths and injuries of several militants.

    Syria's civil war between government forces and a wide range of insurgents, including terrorists, opposition forces, has raged for some five years and has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.
