The Syrian army takes control of the strategically important town
Government troops have returned control of the village Huteyta al- Turkman located near the international airport of Damascus. Rebels organized communication between the Eastern and Western Guta through this village. According to a source in the Syrian armed forces "the rebel troops completely dislodged from the territory of the village."
The village which is located to the south- east of Damascus is strategically important because earlier it focused command centers of "Dzhabhat en- Nusra" and "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant."
