BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:55 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their large-scale offensive in the eastern suburbs of Damascus, Tuesday, targeting the ‘Ayn Tarma Triangle that is partially controlled by the Islamist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman.

Led by the 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army penetrated through Faylaq Al-Rahman’s front-lines on Tuesday to capture the strategic ‘Ayn Tarma Slaughterhouse and its surrounding buildings after a fierce battle.

Images from the battle on Tuesday were released by local journalists; these pictures show the Syrian Arab Army’s advance around the ‘Ayn Tarma Slaughterhouse:

With the capture of the ‘Ayn Tarma Slaughterhouse, the Syrian Arab Army is now in position to cutoff the Islamist rebels from their most important supply route to the key suburb of Jobar, which is located northwest of ‘Ayn Tarma.
