One day after seizing 13 sites in the East Ghouta from the extremist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman and Jaysh Al-Fustat, the Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade and Hezbollah are now shifting their attention north towards the villages of Jisreen and Al-Nashabiyah.

Unlike their previous offensives in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are relying on sheer numbers to overwhelm the extremist rebels.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus City, the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command has deployed several battalions from their Special Forces to the East Ghouta.

Among the many military entities deployed to the East Ghouta are the Syrian Arab Army’s 42nd and 43rd brigades of the prestigious 4th Mechanized Division.

In addition to the 4th Mechanized Division, tueSyrian Arab Army’s 358th and 416th regiments of the Republican Guard have been transferred from the West Ghouta to the East Ghouta.

The coming the days will be incredibly crucial for the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah, as they face off against several extremist rebel groups that are determined to recapture their lost territory.

Recapture lost territory? Haha. Never. They will lose entire the East Ghouta very soon.
