The Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard – backed by Hezbollah, the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), and National Defense Forces (NDF) – imposed full control over the village of Bazinah in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus on Wednesday after a violent battle with Faylaq Al-Rahman and Jaysh Al-Fustat.
The Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah were able to seize this village after the failed counter-attack the extremist rebels launched this morning in order to recapture the Bazinah Farms they lost on Tuesday.
With Bazinah under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are now in prime position to strike the extremist rebels at Deir Al-‘Assafir and Zibdeen; these two towns are considered Faylaq Al-Rahman strongholds in the East Ghouta.
Oddly enough, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah have been advancing inside the East Ghouta without any air support from the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAA).
According to a trusted military source in Damascus City, the Syrian Air Force has not conducted any airstrikes in the Zibdeen region of the East Ghouta in over 48 hours.
