On Monday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard (Harss Al-Jamhouri) discovered a 160 meter long and 7 meter tall tunnel that began in southern Harasta and extended as far as Jobar’s northern outskirts. Upon unearthing the tunnel, the 105th Brigade discovered a large supply of weapons, ammunition, medical supplies, food, money, and telecommunication devices that were all packed into this supply tunnel.

According to a Syrian military source, the tunnel was used to resupply the Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) fighters entrenched in the Jobar District. The source further added that a firefight ensued between Jaysh Al-Islam and the 105th Brigade; it resulted in the death of 8 militants from the former and 1 soldier from the SAA.

At nearby Douma, Jaysh Al-Islam has begun to clash with their former allies from Jaysh Al-Alameh (Army of the Nation) after a dispute between the 2 groups over the control of certain neighborhoods inside this rebel-held city in the Rif Dimashq Governorate. Meanwhile, the 105th Brigade has launched a surprise attack on the outskirts of this city, killing scores of militants, while advancing in the vicinity of the northern farms.

Identified Jaysh Al-Islam militants killed:

1. ‘Abdo Yahya Al-Soufi
2. Mahi al-Deen Abu ‘Aisha
3. Mohammad ‘Abdel-Hadi Khabayya
4. Sobhi Al-Sheikh Ibrahim

The 105th Brigade has continued its successful offensive in Jobar, targeting militants in the southern part of the district, as the Syrian Arab Air Force pounds Jaysh Al-Islam from the air. According to a military source, violent firefights were recently reported near the Jobar Industrial School, Parliament Square, and the Al-Manasheer (Sawmill) Roundabout.
