BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale offensive inside the East Ghouta, Wednesday, seizing the last farms under militant control in the eastern part of this region.
Led by their elite Tiger Forces and 4th Division, the Syrian Arab Army scored advances at two different axes in this rural region outside of Damascus, giving them access to the eastern suburbs of the East Ghouta.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Army captured the eastern farms of Jisreen in the southern part of the East Ghouta, while also making new advances inside the town of Al-Rayhan.
As a result of the aforementioned advance, the Syrian Army has managed to reach the eastern outskirts of Jaysh Al-Islam’s largest stronghold in the East Ghouta, Douma.
The Syrian Army is now working to capture all of Al-Rayhan, along with Jisreen and nearby Al-Hamouriyah.
