According to our reporter, the army brought the town under full control on Thursday.
The town is located 56 km to the northeast of capital Damascus, and is built into the rugged mountainside, at an altitude of more than 1500 meters.
Syria is bracing against a possible US attack which the Washington has been threatening to conduct anytime soon.
Tensions rose high in the region after US threatened to attack Syria over the false allegations of a chemical attack By the Syrian government , actually done by the Saudi Sponsored anti-Syria terrorists’ claims.
Damascus has categorically denied using chemicals and has said it had evidence that showed the Saudi -backed militants conducted the attack to make a pretext for their Western supporters to attack Syrian land and enter into war.
Washington, which has been supporting the anti-Syria militants both politically and militarily, had said before that using chemicals is its redline, and it would only enter directly in the war if the Syrian army used chemical weapons.
Reports of the alleged attack emerged on August 21, after militants posted videos and photos of dead bodies, foamed in their mouths, and claimed the army conducted the attack on people in Ghouta, near capital.
Ghouta is a militant-held area and the army soldiers have been denied access to it for months.
However Syrian government helped a visiting team of UN inspectors last week to visit and investigate several sites which they had evidence were targeted by chemical weapons by militants.
The UN inspectors which left Damascus on August 31st said the result of their report could take three weeks to come out.
