BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:55 A.M.) – For the second night in a row, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has launched a powerful night assault in the East Ghouta region of Damascus.
Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army attacked the Pechora Regiment Base that is located southwest of recently captured Hawsh Dawahra.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Tiger Forces managed to capture the Pechora Regiment Base after a brief battle with Jaysh Al-Islam.
In addition to this advance, the Syrian Arab Army has also begun their assault on the town of Utaya, which is located west of Al-Salihiyah and Al-Nashabiyah.
The Syrian Army has been launching these night attacks in order to capitalize on Jaysh Al-Islam’s poor visibility; this has had a major affect on the Islamist group’s defense of this area.
