BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their field operations in the East Ghouta region this week, targeting the remaining localities near the Islamist-held city of Douma.
Backed by heavy artillery and airstrikes, the Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces and Republican Guard pushed north from recently captured Al-Shifouniyah towards the key town of Al-Rayhan
Following an intense battle with the Islamist rebels, the Syrian Army was able to enter Al_Rayhan and take control of much of the town, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News this morning.
The Syrian Army is now attempting to capture the last parts of Al-Rayhan before the Islamist rebels send much needed reinforcements to this front.
