BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:36 P.M.) – New forces of the Syrian Arab Army are rushing their main assault units to eastern Damascus amid a looming offensive operation against militant groups operating in the region.

Military-affiliated sources state that the main storming regiments and fire support units of key Syrian Army formations, until now occupied elsewhere across Syria, have begun to arrive in the East Ghouta region of Damascus.

Reports are mostly based on observations of large convoys of troops and heavy equipment approaching the Syrian capital via the north.

The newly arriving forces have just concluded major operations against armed rebel groups and ISIS across the provinces of Hama, Aleppo and Idlib and are now being re-tasked following the implementation general ceasefire regime – brokered by Moscow and Ankara – across Syria’s northwest.

Whilst most of the Syrian Army reinforcements have already fought battles across East Ghouta at one point, some are rumored to have never once yet conducted anti-insurgency operations in the region.
