After fierce battles stretching over several days, Free Syrian Army (FSA) brigades managed to seize control of the town of Deir Attiah, in the Qalamoun area, on the highway connecting the capital Damascus to the central city of Homs.
On the morning of Wednesday November 20, the FSA entered the town and liberated it, adding another achievement to the latest series of victories across Syria. Recent FSA victories expose the regime’s lies about fake advances which it tries to sell to its desperate mercenaries.
The Syrian Coalition commends the FSA heroes for their commitment to the guiding principles of the revolution and their brave defence of civilians across the country. This reaffirms that the Syrian revolution will undoubtedly achieve the Syrian people’s demands for freedom, justice, equality, and democracy.
We ask for Mercy for our martyrs, health for our wounded, and freedom for our detainees.
Long live Syria and its people, free and with honor.
