DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:00) – With Islamist rebels now expelled from almost 40% of the Eastern Ghouta region, the Syrian Army continues to reclaim more territories as battles intensify.

Today, the government troops manage to impose full control on al-Asha’ari farms outskirts located to the west of Hawsh Asha’ari town; now expected to fall at any given moment.

Meanwhile,  rebel defensives are steadily collapsing as army units in the recently-restored al-Muhamadiyah town advance toward Aftris and Hawah Qubaybat.

In the meantime, clashes are ongoing inside al-Rayhan town where the Saudi-backed Jaysh al-Islam is showing a strong resistance.

According to an informed military source, the militants are desperately seeking a safe escape out of al-Rayhan before being completely overwhelmed by the Syrian Army.

With the whole Asha’ari- Aftris- Qubaybat axis retaken by the government, the Army would be at the gates of the heavily-populated towns of East Ghouta such as Hamuriyah, Saqba and Jisrin.
