BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their counter-offensive in the eastern Damascus, Saturday, targeting the defenses of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, and Faylaq Al-Rahman in the Harasta suburb.

During the assault, the Syrian Army managed to destroy a command-and-control center belonging to the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in Harasta.

According to a military source in Damascus, the destruction of the HTS command-and-control center resulted in the death of more than ten jihadists, including the group’s top emir (commander), Abu Talal Al-Qabouni.

In addition to killing Abu Talal Al-Qabouni, the Syrian Army also eliminated another field commander, Abu Mohammad Tahoun, while destroying the HTS base.

The Syrian Army was able to advance from several axes in Harasta on Saturday, leaving them less than 100 meters away from lifting the siege on the vehicle base.
