Fierce urban warfare continues to rip through Al-Layramoun district as government troops managed to maintain their positions against a full-scale offensive launched by multiple Islamist factions.

Syrian soldiers storming the once booming industrial district and recaptured the Shbeib factory located in Khalidiyah neighborhood, alongside several nearby blocks following ferocious battles with Islamist fighters yesterday.

The hardline militants, however, have massively attacked the facility, using tanks, heavy machineguns and hundreds of fighters.

The Syrian Army’s elite 4th Armoured Division holed up in the shattered factory managed to prematurely blow up a booby-trapped BMB before getting closer to Army’s defensives. Huge cloud of dust then was seen all over the area.

Violent clashes followed the explosion whereby the army troops managed to destroy a tank, kill dozens of the attackers.

Anti-government factions in the industrial district include the FSA-affiliated 16th Division, Jabhat al-Nusra and al-Muajereen Army (made up of extremist fighters from the Caucasus).

مئات اسلاميين، بالهجوم؟. وأعتقد أن التنسيق طائرات تجسس وصاع، أنها تمتص.
