BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 A.M.) – On Tuesday morning, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a new assault in the eastern suburbs of Damascus, targeting the western sector of Jobar for the second time this week.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham began their offensive by launching a SVBIED attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in western Jobar; however, this suicide bombing was foiled before it could reach its intended target.

Following the suicide attempt, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham managed to partially fracture the Syrian Arab Army’s front-lines in Jobar, seizing the Fabric Factory after a fierce battle that lasted for nearly two hours on Tuesday.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham turned their attention to the Jobar-‘Abbasiyeen axis following the capture of the Fabric Factory; this once again led to a series of intense clashes.

The jihadist rebels remain on the offensive in Jobar, despite heavy airstrikes from both the Syrian and Russian air forces that were meant to forestall Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s progress.

While the jihadist group has achieved some success today, it will be very difficult for them to hold onto these points if they fail fortify their positions before the Syrian Army launches a counter-attack in Jobar.

The Syrian Arab Army and its allies should take the initiative and not only launch a counter offensive, but also launch a massive offensive on the heart of the terror squads’ bastion on al-Gouta attacking these Zionist proxies from behind their lines and from the front like a plier. They should be no stopping now until all the terror squads are comletely crushed and the areas they control in and around Damascus are completely freed from these scum, whatever they call themselves, Free Syrian Army, Tahrar al-Sham or ISIS or whatever. They should learn from history how the Romans under… Read more »
