The Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard has made significant progress in the Jobar District; this week, the SAA liberated the Fitina Towers south of the Army Base. The liberation of the Fitina Towers comes one week after the SAA secured the New Cemetery in Jobar. According to a military source, at least 25 members of Jaysh Al-Islam were killed during the liberation of the Fitina Towers.

In southern Jobar, the SAA is entrenched with Hezbollah soldiers at Parliament Square. Clashes have been ongoing, with the firefights intensifying over the last two weeks. Matching the intensity of the firefights is the Syrian Air Force’s persistent aerial bombardments of Jaysh Al-Islam positions. The Syrian Air Force carried out 31 airstrikes in Jobar over the last two days, destroying militant dens in the process.

The dead Jaysh Al-Islam fighters in Jobar yesterday:

1. ‘Abdel-Nawaf Al-Zibdi (Saudi field commander of Jaysh Al-Islam)

2. ‘Umar Neiffi (Libyan field commander of Jaysh Al-Islam)

3. ‘Anwar ‘Abdel-Aziz

4. ‘Usama Al-Ra’ees

5. Hassan Ta’ameh

6. Bashir Al-‘Ajwa (Syrian field commander of Jaysh Al-Islam)

7. Samir Al-Ashkar

After a successful reconciliation in the affluent Rif Dimashq Governate city of Qudisia, the Syrian Arab Army has reopened the roads in the city and they have allowed passage to and from Qudisia.

Artillery shells continue to rain down on Wadi ‘Ayn Tarma, where the SAA has continued its siege. Not far in Al-Dakhaniyya, the SAA captured 4 building blocks in the southwest entrance of the city.

Prominent Jabhat Al-Nusra field commander, Abu ‘Abdel-Rahman Al-Baqa’a, was killed by Hezbollah at Falita near Yabroud.
