BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had another successful day in the East Ghouta, as their forces managed to score new advances in the eastern and western corridors of this farming region.
Beginning in the eastern corridor, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces were able to capture the town of Hawsh Dawahra after a short battle with Jaysh Al-Islam.
Following the capture of Hawsh Dawahra, the Syrian Army attacked Jaysh AL-Islam’s positions at Al-Shifouniyah; this resulted in their forces entering this important town – intense clashes are ongoing.
Meanwhile, at the suburb of Harasta, the Syrian Army was able to capture 90 percent of the Al-Ajami District, following a heavy battle with Faylaq Al-Rahman and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
The Syrian Army is now working to secure the last part of the Al-Ajami District in a bid to take control of western Harasta.
