BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 A.M.) – The Islamist rebels launched a big counter-assault in the East Ghouta region of Damascus, following the collapse of peace talks with Russia.
Led by Jaysh Al-Islam, the Islamist rebels stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at the towns of Misraba and Al-Shifouniyah; this would result in a series of intense clashes.
In response to the Jaysh Al-Islam counter-offensive, the Syrian and Russian air forces would launch several airstrikes over the Islamist group’s positions inside the Douma pocket.
