BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – At approximately 10:00 A.M. (Damascus Time) this morning, the Syrian Arab Army kicked off another big offensive in the East Ghouta region.
Led by the Tiger Forces and 4th Division, the Syrian Arab Army wasted no time after the 30 day humanitarian ceasefire was announced, launching a big assault on the defenses of Faylaq Al-Rahman and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in Harasta.
According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army is involved in a fierce battle with the Islamist rebels at the Harasta-Arbeen front – no major advance has been reported.
The Syrian Arab Army has repeatedly attempted to clear the Harasta-Arbeen axis this year; however, each attack has been met with fierce resistance from the Islamist forces in the area.
In addition to their attack on Harasta, the Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard stormed the Jobar suburb in the western part of the East Ghouta – no advance reported.
