Rebels’ iconic stronghold in Eastern Ghouta is now under serious threat after government forces stormed two towns located several kilometers to the east of the insurgent-held of Douma.

According to a military source, government troops launched their attack from two different axes; from Adra Prison to Tal Kurdi, and from the Industrial Zone to Tal Sawwan.

The attacking forces managed to impose full control on Tal Sawwan farms before advancing toward the supply route of Tal Kurdi. The swift progress has forced the Islamist rebels to retreat westward for fear of being completely encircled.

The source also confirmed that at least 20 fighters from the Saudi-backed Jaysh al-Islam were killed in the offensive.

Your wish is granted. Also ours. But let’s do not forget especially those brave soldiers who last year fell in blood to regain Tal Kurdi. God bless all of them. Look at the following link.

This is before we even talk about Erdogan, who before long will outright invade Kurdish areas from the Turkish border, bypassing the need for proxies, because Rojava is looking to be linked up. Assad can’t allow Turkey to assail them from the north so he will escalate his aid to the Kurds, resulting in a bloodbath in the north. This war is going to get a whole lot messier.

Excellent

East Easter Ghouta is the easiest part.
I think that SAA must cut the pocket in three parts preventing “rebels” to flee with their weapons. Cut vertically and then cut horizontally the west part.
