The Syrian army has recaptured a key town and airbase in the Damascus countryside, leaving rebel groups in the Eastern Ghouta region vulnerable to further attacks by government forces.

The Marj as-Sultan airport was reportedly taken by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Assad-loyalist National Defence Forces (NDF) on Monday morning, after remaining under rebel control for three years.

“The Syrian army has taken full control of the town of Marj al-Sultan and its airport in Eastern Ghouta,” a military source told AFP.

The airport was seized by rebel groups in November 2012.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the pro-government forces, which support President Bashar al-Assad, also included Hezbollah.
