BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale offensive in the West Ghouta region of Damascus this morning, targeting Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s last positions inside the Beit Jinn pocket.

Led by their elite 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Army stormed Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s defenses at the large hilltop of Tal Al-Ahmar this morning.

According to a military report, the Syrian Army’s 42nd Brigade was able to impose full control over Tal Al-Ahmar after losing the hilltop two days ago duirng a jihadist counter-offensive.

With Tal Al-Ahmar once again under their control, the Syrian Army has asserted fire control over the road linking the towns of Beit Saber and Mughar Al-Mir.
