BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 A.M.) – The Free Syrian Army’s “Ahmad Al-‘Abdo Brigades” continued their offensive against the Islamic State (ISIS) forces in the eastern Qalamoun region of Damascus on Friday, seizing two more hilltops from the terrorist organization.

According to opposition activists, the Free Syrian Army, alongside Jaysh Al-Islam, seized the hilltops of Rajm Al-Sawaan and Rajm Al-Doshka along the eastern slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains.

This latest advance by the rebel forces comes just 24 hours after they launched their powerful assault to expel the Islamic State militants from this mountainous region.

ISIS has maintained a large presence in the Qalamoun Mountains since late 2014, when they took control of several points inside of both Lebanon’s Beqa’a Governorate and Syria’s Rif Dimashq Governorate.

    • Hum, Jaysh-al-Islam are a nice bunch of Saudi/Turkey proxies that like to put women and children in cages upon their roof as human shields and are not against the use of chlorine or even Sarin…
      With mofos like these, we’ll end being forced to create a nice little mix between VX and Tabun and resume the prod of such ugly things…
