After months of violent clashes with Jaysh Al-Islam (“Army of Islam”) militants, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard has declared the East District of Jobar under complete fire control. As a result of this progression, approximately 800 Jaysh Al-Islam militants are now trapped inside Jobar, with almost nowhere to retreat.

This news surfaces 2 days after Zahran Alloush (Jaysh Al-Islam leader) stated that there will be no ceasefire agreement with the Syrian Government in Damascus to combat the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS). With 800 of his soldiers trapped inside the city-center, Alloush faces a difficult decision in the coming days that could change the situation in the East Ghouta.
