Assad forces take Marj al-Sultan near Damascus

Syrian government forces took Marj al-Sultan, with its airbase, from the rebels on 14 December 2015. The town and its airbase, located east of Damascus, had been captured by the rebels back in 2012.

Warfare in Damascus and its outskirts is largely positional, with rare changes in territorial control. Capture of Marj al-Sultan represents one such change.
