BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:25 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), alongside the Arab Nationalist Guard and National Defense Forces (NDF), made a significant advance in the strategic Al-Qaboun District of east Damascus, Al-Masdar’s Ibrahim Joudeh reported from Damascus today.
Some fighters from the pro-government Arab Nationalist Guard. Many of these fighters come from regional countries, including Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Tunisia, and Egypt.
Led by their 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army seized several buildings in Al-Qaboun’s eastern sector, killing and wounding a large number of jihadist rebels from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.
In addition to their advance in east Al-Qaboun, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies also managed to unearth a jihadist tunnel in the southeastern sector of the district.

According to Joudeh, a group of jihadists were trapped inside this tunnel and were ordered by the Syrian Arab Army to surrender; however, they refused, so the SAA destroyed the tunnel.

The Syrian Arab Army’s High Command has once again offered to transport the jihadist rebels to Idlib in exchange for their surrendering of Al-Qaboun; this will likely be accepted soon because they have lost too much ground.
