DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:45 P.M.) – Infighting in the East Ghouta peaked on Saturday as jihadist factions clashed with one another on an unprecident scale, leading to the death of a high-ranking commander of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS).

With dozens more killed in the inter-rebel clashes, HTS chief Abu Ayyoub Tasni was shot dead by Jaish Al-Islam just two days after being arrested in the town of Irbeen.

Jaish Al-Islam, a Saudi-funded group, is the largest East Ghouta rebel faction. It is now opposed by HTS, Failaq Al-Rahman (Free Syrian Army group) and Ahrar Al-Sham.

All four factions released statements regarding the clashes, thereby reaffirming them.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) watches with delight from afar. Only three insurgent pockets are left in and around the Syrian capital.

Government forces are currently trying to wrestle control of Al-Qaboun and Barzeh. Once this urban area of East Damascus is liquidated, the SAA will launch a brand new East Ghouta offensive, sources inform Al-Masdar News.

A classic case of braindead zionist mercenaries slaughtering other braindead zionist mercenaries.
