BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army launched an important offensive in eastern Damascus this week, targeting the jihadist-held territory in Jobar and ‘Ayn Tarma.

Led by the 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard and Special Mission Forces, the Syrian Arab Army managed to make several gains over the last 24 hours, seizing a number of buildings along the heavily fortified front-lines of the jihadist rebels.

On Wednesday, the Syrian Arab Army announced the capture of a large tunnel that was used in the Al-Jisr Neighborhood of ‘Ayn Tarma; this was followed by the seizure of this neighborhood shortly after.

Meanwhile in the Jobar District of east Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army announced the capture of the Ghazwat Badr Mosque after a short battle with jihadist rebels in the area.

The Syrian Arab Army’s High Command has issued another demand to the jihadist forces in Jobar and ‘Ayn Tarma; either surrender these areas or prepare to fight to the death.
