Damascus, Syria (9:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, backed by the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), launched a new assault in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus, targeting the strategic Signal Base that is under Jaysh Al-Islam’s (Army of Islam) control.

The Republican Guard and their allies managed to enter the southern corridor of the East Ghouta Signal Base after a fierce battle with the Jaysh Al-Islam militants this afternoon.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus City, the Syrian Armed Forces suffered 5 casualties (2 killed and 3 wounded) during the assault, while also killing 9 Jaysh Al-Islam militants.

Meanwhile, at the Tal Sawwan front in the East Ghouta, the Syrian Arab Army foiled the Jaysh Al-Islam offensive to recapture the town after another series of fierce clashes on Monday.

Despite repeated attempts by Jaysh Al-Islam to recapture the town, the Syrian Armed Forces are still in full control of Tal Sawwan.
