The Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) – in coordination with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) – took advantage of the collapsing rebel defenses in southern Damascus, capturing the strategic Da’aboul Street in the Al-Tadamon District near Yarmouk Camp.
With a number of rebel fighters surrendering or defecting to the National Defense Forces (NDF) in southern Damascus, the PLA and PFLP-GC have capitalized on this in the Yarmouk Camp District, as they have expanded their control over a number of building blocks near Deir Yasseen and Palestine Street.
In Al-Zabadani, the SAA and Hezbollah (Party of God) advanced past Tal Al-Hawa (Windy Hill) on the eastern slopes, towards the city gates after capturing two small hills adjacent to the latter.
Meanwhile, at eastern Al-Zabadani, the SAA and NDF carried out a number of attacks on Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) in the East District near Bloudan, killing 12 enemy combatants, including Wassam Issa Fardoun (Lebanese), Lu’ayy ‘Assi Haddad (Lebanese), and Qusay Da’oud ‘Umran.
The SAA’s 105th Brigade discovered a large tunnel in the city of Jobar on Wednesday, confiscating the large cache of assault rifles, ammunition, RPGs, artillery shells, telecommunication devises, and forged passports.
