Confirmed by press reports, the US-NATO supported “Free Syrian Army” has been defeated in Damascus.  

Government forces are in full control of the nation’s capital. The Syrian government has declared victory in Damascus.   

In Aleppo, government forces have regained control of most of the city with pockets of rebel fighters still active in the south-western Aleppo district of Salaheddine. 

“The government of Bashar al-Assad declared victory on Sunday in a hard-fought battle for Syria’s capital Damascus, and pounded rebels who control parts of its largest city Aleppo… Helicopter gunships hovered over the city shortly after dawn and the thud of artillery boomed across neighborhoods. Syrian state television said soldiers was repelling “terrorists” in Salaheddine and had captured several of their leaders.”  (Reuters, July 29, 2012) 

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem stated during a visit to Tehran: “Today I tell you, Syria is stronger… In less than a week they were defeated [in Damascus]  and the battle failed. So they moved on to Aleppo and I assure you, their plots will fail.”
