The Al-Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra) suffered a major setback on Tuesday morning, when 2 prominent field commanders in the Qalamoun Mountains were killed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) during an operation in the village of Jayroud. According to a military source, Mamoun Shakra and “Abu Baha’ Al-Danaf” (ID pending), were identified as the Al-Nusra Front field commanders killed by the NDF in Jayroud.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard is now in control of 85% of Jobar after capturing the East District inside the city last week. The 105th Brigade is still concentrated on capturing the Al-Manasheer (Sawmill) Roundabout, Jobar Industrial School, and Parliament Square; these 3 areas are the remaining strongholds inside the city that Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) still asserts control over.

At Khan Al-Sheih, the SAA carried out a number of raids near the Liquor Factory, killing a number of militants and capturing a large cache of weapons from the Islamic Front in the process. Heavy firefights have been reported from this area in the West Ghouta, as both forces continue to exchange gunfire and artillery shells in order to take control of this imperative city.
