BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is rolling in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus today, seizing several farms from the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) near the key town of Hazrama.

Led by the 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army advanced from the village of Maya’ani to Hawsh Shalaq after seizing all of the farms in the area from Jaysh Al-Islam.

Following the capture of these farms, the Syrian Arab Army shifted their attention to Hazrama, where they encountered a massive force comprised of several Islamist militants.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent, the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture all of the farms between Al-Bahariyah and Hazrama, leading them to aforementioned village’s outskirts for the first time in 4 years.

The Al-Masdar field correspondent added that the Syrian Arab Army is now storming Hazrama from two different axes, while they receive aerial support from the Syrian Arab Air Force.

@ Leith Fadel .

I do so wish that the author would quantify the word ‘several’.
Several ‘terrorists’ is generally accepted as being less that ten. Several tens as being less that 100 and several hundred as being less than 1000 etc.

Please quantify what you say.

Massive force of several terrorists. Massive meaning 5 terrorists? Same as massive convoy of reinforcements with 4 pickup trucks and 20 soldiers… Author should really work on his writing skills and avoid massive, backs against the wall and other sentence constructions that appear too often or aren’t painting the correct picture at all.
