DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:15 PM) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has succesfully broken the siege of the armoured vehicle military base in Harasta, East Damascus.

Units from the elite 4th Armoured Division of the Syrian army broke through the defensive lines of the rebel forces on Sunday and entered the Harasta vehicle base from the west. Earlier that day, the 4th Division had taken over the mill factory building overlooking the base, which allowed for the successful final push.

Immediately after securing the western edge of the base, the Syrian forces set up a corridor for the supply of food, medicine and military supplies to the soldiers inside the base, who had been cut off from the outside for days.

Currently, military operations are still going on in order to fully secure the base from all sides and to prevent a rebel counterattack.
