BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Free Syrian Army (FSA) launched a big offensive along the eastern slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains on Monday, targeting the area around the villages of Al-Mahsaa and Abou Al-Shamat.

Led by their Ahmad ‘Abdo Brigade, Assoud Al-Sharqiyah Army, and Al-Quraytayn Martyrs Brigade, the Free Syrian Army stormed the Islamic State’s (ISIL) positions in the Al-Mahsaa area this morning in order to lift the siege over the eastern Qalamoun.

According to the Free Syrian Army’s official media wing, their forces managed to capture many points today, forcing the Islamic State to retreat towards the Al-Badiya area of rural Damascus.

If the Free Syrian Army is successful in this east Damascus offensive, they will lift the siege on the eastern Qalamoun.

Hopefully they all exterminate each other or at least significant numbers of any kind of roaches.
