DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:25 P.M.) – Amid increased tensions in the East Ghouta, Jaish Al-Islam stormed and entered Zamalka to dislodge Failaq Al-Rahman (FSA) militants from the town, located on the eastern fringes of the Syrian capital.

Utilizing heavy weaponry and tanks, Jaish Al-Islam entered the northeastern part of the FSA stronghold and engaged Failaq Al-Rahman who subsequently called upon Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) to stiffen their defenses.

With HTS reinforcements flooding into the town, heavy clashes erupted in Zamalka especially in the evening hours.

So far, at least 90 rebel fighters have been killed in the infighting that began last week, 32 of whom were from Jaish Al-Islam.

Meanwhile, Jaish Al-Islam apologized in an official statement for opening fire on protesters, killing and injuring many civilians in the process.

I strongly support both camps when they do such actions : it makes my day every time : it spares the lives of normal people when shithadists kill each other.
