On Tuesday, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard (Harss Al-Jamhouri) has conducted a series of operations that were geared to cutoff the remaining Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) supply routes to the city of Jobar.
The 105th Brigade confronted a Jaysh Al-Islam contingent in the neighborhood of the industrial schools and mail delivery facility; this firefight led to the 105th Brigade taking complete control of this strategic building block that was used by the militants to store supplies.
At Douma, the 105th Brigade – in cooperation with Jaysh Al-Wafaa – continued their offensive at both Ar-Rayhan Farms and Aliyyah Farms in order to capture the rebel stronghold of Douma in the East Ghouta.
According to a military source, the 105th Brigade is attempting to facilitate a joint agreement with Jaysh Al-Islam that would allow for civilians to be evacuated from the city of Douma in order to evade the escalating violence.
The Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) launched at least a dozen airstrikes on Wednesday in Douma; these airstrikes targeted Jaysh Al-Islam gatherings near the northern farms.
A ceasefire has been implemented in the Yarmouk Camp District after an agreement was put in place between the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) and the militants of the Al-Qaeda linked “Al-Nusra Front” (Jabhat Al-Nusra).
Details of the agreement have not been released; however, a military source in the area confirmed that this ceasefire will allow for humanitarian aid to reach the remaining civilians inside Yarmouk Camp.
