On Monday morning, the rural area of the Rif Dimashq Governorate known as the “East Ghouta” was flooded with violence between the Syrian Armed Forces and the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Islam and Faylaq Al-Rahman.

Both parties attempted to gain ground inside of the East Ghouta, as the Syrian Armed Forces targeted the cities of Mayda’, Hawsh Al-Farah, Douma,Al-Rehan, Zibeen, Deir Al-Asafeer, and ‘Ayn Tarma; meanwhile, the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Islam and Faylaq Al-Rahman focused their attention on the dilapidated city of Jobar.

Recently, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard has shifted its forces to the Mayda’ front in order to obstruct Jaysh Al-Islam’s only supply route to the East Ghouta; however, this has not been an easy task for the Syrian Armed Forces, as the militants from Jaysh Al-Islam have been unwilling to concede any territory without fight.

If the Syrian Armed Forces can capture the city of Mayda’; this will ultimately spell trouble for the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Islam that use the road inside of this city to replenish their supplies because of the scarcity of necessities they are already experiencing in many areas of the East Ghouta.

On Monday morning, the Syrian Armed Forces – in coordination with the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) carried out a powerful assault at the city of ‘Ayn Tarma, killing scores of enemy combatants from Jaysh Al-Islam that included a total of 39 Jordanians and Kuwaitis (allegedly).
