BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:16 P.M.) – The Syrian Army led by the Republican Guards and 4th Division forces continue their counter-attack against the Failaq al-Rahman, Ahrar al-Sham and Tahrir al Sham militants north of Jobar.
The Syrian Army last night were able to foil the militants infiltration attempt towards Al-Ghazel Factory (Weaving Factory). In response, the Syrian Army launched a swift counter-attack against militants positions south of the weaving factory building forcing many of them to retreat towards Jobar while some others are still besieged in couple of buildings in the area.
A plethora of militants were killed by the Syrian Army in the counterattack.
Earlier this morning, the Russian and Syrian airforce launched heavy airstrikes on Jobar and the area between Jobar and Qaboun industrial zone. The airforces scored direct hits on their gathering and destroyed three vehicles.
According to Syrian military sources, the Syrian Army will continue storming and counterattacking in the area and that the situation is very good. The sources explain that the Syrian Army will not stop its assault with the recapture of lost points, but will continue its push to liberate all of Jobar.
