BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – A fierce battle broke-out in the East Ghouta region of Damascus, today, after a group of Islamist rebels attempted to advance near the Harasta axis.

The Islamist rebels attempted to retake the points they lost to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) last night; however, they have failed to make any advances today.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Army has sent a large number of reinforcements to this front in order to beat back an Islamist attack near Harasta.

Intense clashes are still ongoing at the moment near the Harasta axis, but the primary Islamist assault failed to yield any gains.

It is impossible that the terrorists have such unlimited supply of weapons abd ammunition in their arsenal. There s only one explanation. The so called UN aid supplies. In fact the attacks by the terrorists always follow such consignments. As for the Syrian government forces, they should not only content themselves with only pushing back the terrorists, they should go on the conter offensive and completely eradicate them from the capital city. In this way there will be no more murders of innocent lives in Damascus through the terrorist shelling.
