DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:00 A.M.) – The government troops continue to advance in the northeastern neighborhood of al-Qaboun as infighting engulfs the rebel forces in Eastern Ghouta region.

Taking advantage of the current state of turbulence among rival rebel groups in the Eastern Ghouta, the Syrian Army intensified its military operation in the insurgent-controlled neighborhood, recapturing more areas and destroying more tunnels.

According to a military source, the troops re-took several building blocks in the south-east and south-west of al-Qaboun, thus reducing the distance to split the neighborhood to 450 meters only.

The same source added that at least 5 militants from Faylaq al-Rahman and Ahrar al-Sham were killed in the clashes.

Rebel defensives have steadily collapsed as the ongoing infighting demanded that more fighter be deployed to other fronts where fierce battles are taking place between the Saudi-backed Jaish al-Islam on one hand, and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham and Faylaq al-Rahman on the other.
