BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began their important counter-offensive, Thursday, to lift the siege on the strategic vehicle base in the eastern part of Damascus.

Backed by powerful airstrikes from their air force, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th and 106th brigades of the Republican Guard made their move inside the Harasta suburb, Thursday, attacking Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s defenses from several axes.

The powerful assault would prove somewhat successful, as the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture several building blocks that were seized by Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Faylaq Al-Rahman last week.

While their gains have been limited, the Syrian Arab Army has been able to inflict heavy damage on the Islamist fortifications, paving the way for another big assault that is expected to begin in the coming hours.
