Syrian troops capture major eastern Ghouta town
In Syria, government forces have captured the town of Kafr Batna and large parts of nearby Saqba in eastern Ghouta.
The new push by the government forces has squeezed the rebels in a small corner.
The capture of Kafr Batna and Saqba is a major blow to the rebels since they were among their largest strongholds in the area. APP/AFP
