The Syrian Arab Army liberated the Industrial Quarter of the city of ‘Adra after five days of fierce firefights inside the city. Yesterday, while examining the recently captured Industrial Quarter, the Syrian Arab Army discovered a 1km long tunnel stretching from the city center of ‘Adra to the rebel stronghold of Douma. Inside the tunnel, the Syrian Arab Army confiscated a large cache of weapons, ammunition, mobile devices, and chemicals to make chlorine gas.

Syrian Arab Army engineers were called in this morning to dismantle multiple IEDs placed in many motor vehicles, residential areas, and parks. According to a military source, 18 vehicles loaded with improvised explosives were discovered during an SAA patrol; it took nearly six hours to clear the area of all hazardous devices.

Military operations continued in the Jobar District, where the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard stormed the besieged Parliament Square. The Republican Guard liberated two building blocks, while the Syrian Air Force provided much needed assistance from the air. At least 30 militants were killed and another 20 were wounded during the intense firefights between Jaysh Al-Islam and the Republican Guard. Some of the militants that were identified are the following:

Mustafa Al-Ghazawi
Kamal Al-Ghazawi
Fayaz Harroun
‘Umar Al-Najjar
‘Abdullah Mahmoud Al-‘Abdullah
Sabahi Al-Hataw
Jassim ‘Ahmad Al-‘Ali,
