Over the last 72 hours, the militants of Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) have suffered a significant amount of casualties in Douma due to the Syrian Arab Air Force’s (SAAF) bombing campaigns and the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) present siege of this rebel stronghold.

Yesterday, the 105th Brigade of the Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard (Harss Al-Jamhouri) broke-through Jaysh Al-Islam defenses at Aliyyah Farms and took control over a large area of territory in northern Douma.

East of Douma, the 105th Brigade continued to press Jaysh Al-Islam forces at Ar-Rayhan Farms, while advancing toward the city. The Republican Guard was able to capture the Ar-Rayhan Orchard (Bastan Ar-Rayhan), following a fierce firefight with Jaysh Al-Islam over this rugged area.

The total casualty count for the 105th Brigade was recorded at 31 soldiers over the last 3 days; meanwhile, the total number of militants lost from Jaysh Al-Islam was unknown. However, sources close to Al-Masdar News were able to report the names of 53 identified rebel fighters that were killed over the course of 3 days in Douma:
