BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – The Islamist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham are suffering heavy losses  in eastern Damascus, as Syrian Arab Army (SAA) units plow through what is left under their control in the suburbs of Jobar and ‘Ayn Tarma.

Led by the elite 42nd Brigade (Ghiath Forces) of the 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Arab Army scored another big advance in Jobar this week after storming the area around the strategic Al-Manasher Roundabout.

According to an officer from the 42nd Brigade, his unit captured more than ten building blocks around the Al-Manasher Roundabout, killing and wounding several militants from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Faylaq Al-Rahman.

The officer added that the Syrian Army will continue to advance on the ground during the day and pound the Islamist rebels with surface-to-surface missiles at night; they will stop their assault once Jobar is cleared or the militants surrender.
