BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) entered the town of Al-Shifouniyah after a fierce battle with Jaysh Al-Islam in the eastern corridor of the East Ghouta region.
Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army was able to infiltrate Jaysh Al-Islam’s defenses this afternoon, following the resumption of their field activity at 2:00 P.M. (Damascus Time).
The Syrian Army is now attempting to take control of Al-Shifouniyah, despite heavy resistance from Jaysh Al-Islam.
While the Syrian Army works to capture Al-Shifouniyah, their sappers are working to clear the town of Hawsh Dawahra of mines and IEDs that may have been left behind by Jaysh Al-Islam.
Hawsh Dawahra was captured last night, when the Tiger Forces launched a massive attack at dusk.
