BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a powerful assault in the strategic east Damascus suburb of Jobar, Monday, targeting Faylaq Al-Rahman’s last positions in this area.

Led by the 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Arab Army pushed south of the Al-Manasher Roundabout this morning, inflicting heavy damage on Faylaq Al-Rahman’s defenses as they attempt to link their positions with the 105th Brigade near ‘Ayn Tarma.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Army is making steady progress in Jobar, capturing several buildings that were once untouchable due to the enemy’s defenses.

The Syrian Arab Army has taken advantage of the today’s infighting between the Islamist rebel factions to score new gains in the eastern suburbs of Damascus, further pressuring Faylaq Al-Rahman to sue for peace.
