BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched another powerful attack in the eastern suburbs of Damascus today, targeting Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s defenses inside of Al-Qaboun.

Led by the elite 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and 106th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the western sector of Al-Qaboun, where they were confronted by a large force of jihadist rebels.

Intense clashes are still ongoing at this moment in Al-Qaboun, with the Syrian Arab Army on the offensive, a military source told Al-Masdar News on Friday.

The Al-Qaboun suburb has long been under the control of the jihadist rebels and continues to be used by the latter to transport supplies to besieged militants in the East Ghouta region of east Damascus.

Lets hope for green buses to Idlib soon.


Since Al-Qaboun suburb is under control of an enemy force, and been surrounded by the government troops, where from do those supplies which are being forwarded to the East Ghouta come from? How come such a small area like Al-Qaboun and Barzah, themselves being surrounded and cut off from being supplied, can be used to resupply such a much bigger area like East Ghouta? Something doesn’t add up here!
