A Hezbollah military media unit said the Syrian army captured the town of Jisreen on Friday in an insurgent pocket in eastern Ghouta where thousands of people have fled since Thursday.

"The Syrian army is continuing its operations in eastern Ghouta and gained control of Jisreen town," said the unit run by Lebanon's Hezbollah, which fights alongside the army in Syria.
Thousands of civilians were fleeing from besieged enclaves on opposite ends of Syria on Friday as two major battles in the multi-sided war entered decisive phases.
