On Friday night, the Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard – alongside Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) – advanced to the strategic town of Deir Al-‘Assafir after a violent 3 day long battle with the extremist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group).
This latest government advance in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus was a result of the Syrian Arab Army’s relentless push across the Bala Farms near the Marj Al-Sultan Military Airport.
Assisting the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah from above, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) carried out several airstrikes over the town of Deir Al-‘Assafir on Friday, killing a large number of enemy combatants from Jabhat Al-Nusra and Faylaq Al-Rahman.
