BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 A.M.) – For the second day in a row, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has launched a powerful assault inside the Harasta suburb of east Damascus, targeting the territory captured by Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Faylaq Al-Rahman last week.

Backed by heavy artillery, the Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard and 4th Division stormed the last 100 meters separating their front-lines and the strategic vehicle base.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army has already begun to advance inside the Harasta suburb, capturing some more building blocks that were under the control of the Islamist rebels.

Currently, the Syrian Arab Army is still 100 meters away from lifting the siege on the vehicle base and still several building blocks away from recapturing the Al-Barazi Hospital, which is another important site inside Harasta.
