Damascus, Syria (12:36 A.M.) – Footage emerged of the elite Syrian Army’s Republican Guard steamrolling through the defense lines of the salafist group Jaish Al-Islam (Army of Islam) in the northern sector of the jihadist-held bastion of Eastern Ghouta.
Soon after the Syrian Army captured vast stretches of villages and farms in the southern and eastern sectors of Eastern Ghouta, the Syrian Armed Forces placed their eyes on the northern sector capturing Hawsh Al-Farah and Hawsh Nasri in a short period of time.
With those two towns under control, the Syrian Army seized Al-Rayhan Farms following hours of very intense clashes. This development severs the militant supply line between the Islamist strongholds of Shifuniyah and Al-Rayhan whilst almost completely surrounding Tal Kurdi, one of Jaish Al-Islam’s most well-defended points in Eastern Ghouta.
Should the Syrian Armed Forces breakthrough the northern front lines of Eastern Ghouta, they would be in position to push south onto Hawsh Al-Dawahira and Autaya thereby cutting the jihadist-held blob into two whilst increasingly choking Douma and the nearby towns from their agricultural resources.
