BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored another big advance in the East Ghouta region on Friday, seizing an imperative military base that was one hailed as Jaysh Al-Islam’s most important installation.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army managed to take control of the Battalion 274 base that is located just south of Al-Shifouniyah.

Battalion 274 was used by Jaysh Al-Islam to train new recruits and house several of its fighters prior to the Syrian Arab Army’s large-scale offensive this year.

Jaysh Al-Islam’s founder and late leader, Zahran ‘Alloush, once delivered an infamous speech from the Battalion 274 base that was attended by several members of the Islamist group.

With Battalion 274 captured, the Syrian Army has now turned their attention to Al-Shifouniyah, where they hope to expel Jaysh Al-Islam in the coming hours.

When the base is searched I am sure there will be evidence that links to the US Coalition of Terror.

This is an English page. Write in English. It’s considered arrogant to post on any other language.
