Earlier today, Jaish al-Islam fired 13 shells towards military positions near Adra prison in what was likely a retalition strike for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) capturing the nearby Storage Area three days ago.

Furthermore, Islamist insurgents inside rebel-held Tall Kurdi have now been completely obstructed from recieving supplies due to SAA fire control at two points along the road to this village.

The map below has been created by a local al-Masdar source with exclusive military intel:

Nevertheless, no casualties were reported at the government-held Adra Prison as the insurgent shells seemed to strike at random.

Now, military intel suggests that SAA forces here plan to storm Tall Kurdi within the near future, as government troops control several high points overlooking the village.

While rebels did manage to capture an estimated 40% of the Syrian capital in late 2013, they have been pushed back gradually since then.

Now, Islamist factions at various isolately suburbs inside Damascus city are completely besieged and their forces control no more than 15% of the city.

This is largely due to the government Military High Command opting for a strategic of divide and conquer, thus creating rebel infighting in Yarmouk (southern Damascus) and East Ghouta (eastern Damascus) while having both areas completely surrounded.
