BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored a new advance in the eastern suburbs of Damascus, Friday, following a series of intense clashes with the Islamist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman and Al-Qaeda linked Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham terrorists.

Led by the 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army captured several building blocks around the strategic Harmalah Tunnel this morning, killing and wounding several militants from Faylaq Al-Rahman and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in the process of this advance.

Following this advance in ‘Ayn Tarma, the Syrian Arab Army’s 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division restarted their ground operations in the nearby Jobar suburb.

Both the 42nd and 105th brigades are storming the defenses of the Islamist rebels in a new bid take control of these strategic suburbs in the eastern outskirts of Damascus City.

They have tunnels in abundance connecting to the also held east ghouta region. They have more weapons and ammunition than fighters

May all of faith keep them in prayer in this very difficult and dangerous warfare – that casualties and injuries be greatly minimized – and their fighting effectiveness greatly enhanced by Him.

I wish them luck. Let the bullets speak to them. There is no place for terrorism in modern society.
