BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:05 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their rapid advance in the eastern part of the East Ghouta, today, capturing another military base that was controlled by Jaysh Al-Islam for years.
Led by their Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army launched another big assault south of Al-Shifouniyah, targeting the Battalion 274 base that was under the control of Jaysh Al-Islam militants.
Not long after launching this attack, the Syrian Arab Army was able to infiltrate Jaysh Al-Islam’s defenses at the Battalion 274 base, forcing them to retreat north towards Al-Shifouniyah in order to avoid being overrun.
With Battalion 274 under their control, the Syrian Army now has the town of Al-Shifouniyah surrounded from two different flanks.
More details to come as the battle progresses at Al-Shifouniyah…
