BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:35 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces launched a large-scale offensive targeting the jihadist rebel positions in the Jobar suburb in eastern Damascus, Tuesday.

Footage captured SAA troops ambushing IS locations with smoke billowing over the skyline. Fighters were able to advance and fighters advancing in Taibah sector of Jobar neighbourhood clearing several buildings in the area.

Reportedly four civilians were killed and dozens injured as Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham militants fired home-made missiles targeting different districts of Syrian capital.

Jobar is split between the government and militant forces in east Damascus; it has become the Syrian military’s primary target since the capture of the Qaboun, Tishreen, and Barzeh districts in early May.
