BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:05 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a massive assault in the eastern part of Damascus today, striking the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions inside the Jobar District near the Al-Qaboun front.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham began the assault by sending two SVBIEDs towards the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses before detonating a large tunnel bomb that could be heard all over Damascus.

Intense clashes broke-out following the tunnel bombing this morning, with most of the fighting concentrated on the Karash-Jobar axis.

Syrian Army sources report that the jihadist rebels have yet to make any significant gains at this front, despite the intensity of this attack today.
