The Syrian army has managed to take control of a key area in Jobar which lies on the outskirts of the capital Damascus. The achievement follows several days of intense fighting with al-Nusra terrorists. As Press TV’s Zahraa al-Derzi reports, securing Jobar is significant because it enhances the security of the capital.
