DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3: 20 P.M.) – The largest rebel group in the Eastern Ghouta, Jaish al-Islam, continues to crack down on its rival factions in a bid to dominate the insurgent enclave outside the capital.

Backed by tanks and armored vehicles, the Saudi-funded fighters broke into several positions and bases for Falyal al-Rahman and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham in Al-Asha`ari and Beit Sawa; triggering heavy firefights in the two Eastern Ghouta towns.

Elsewhere, Jaish al-Islam advanced in the outskirts of Hamouriyah; a major bastion for Falyal al-Rahman after fierce clashes which left scores dead and injured from both warring parties.

The Faylaq accused Jaish al-Islam of using ambulances to hide its fighters and eventually infiltrate into its outposts. The claim, however, was entirely denied by Jaish al-Islam.

Meanwhile, more Islamist militants are leaving their stronghold in Qaboun and Barzeh neighborhoods outside the capital for the northwestern province of Idlib as per an agreement held with the Syrian government.

La pregunta, si este sitio está rodeado, ¿Cómo ingresan los suministros a estas áreas?, el ejercito debe encargarse de que no sigan ingresando suministros hasta que se agoten sus armas y comida si es posible, esperar que se maten entre ellos y luego cosechar victoria en la zona.
