BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 A.M.) – The Islamist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman launched a powerful counter-assault in the eastern suburbs of Damascus this morning, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at ‘Ayn Tarma.

Faylaq Al-Rahman militants stormed the Syrian Army’s defenses earlier this morning after losing a large amount of territory to the latter near the ‘Ayn Tarma Meat Market.

However, the Faylaq Al-Rahman assault would not last long, as the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade drove back the militants and secured the areas they recently captured in ‘Ayn Tarma.

The Syrian Arab Army launched their east Damascus offensive in July, following their successful operations in the nearby suburbs of Al-Qaboun and Tishreen.
