BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:05 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began their counter-offensive against the Islamist rebels last night, following a fierce battle inside the Harasta suburb of east Damascus.

Led by their Qalamoun Shield forces of the 3rd Division, the Syrian Army stormed the area around the strategic vehicle base in a bid to retake the areas they lost to Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham on Saturday afternoon.

According to a military source inside Damascus, the Syrian Army is steadily pushing back the Islamist rebels near the vehicle base; however, the installation is still not secure.

The Syrian Army is planning to clear the area around the vehicle base and then retake much of the suburb that was under the control of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.
