BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their East Ghouta offensive on Tuesday, targeting the Islamist rebel defenses at the farms located between Hawsh Al-Dawahra and Al-Shifouniyah.

Led by their elite 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army made an important advance through these rugged farms in the East Ghouta, killing and wounding several members of Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam).

According to Al-Masdar’s field correspondent in Damascus, Ibrahim Joudeh, the Syrian Arab Army were able to advance 400 meters towards Al-Shifouniyah’s northwestern perimeter, seizing 4 farms, 3 trenches, and 2 small tunnels.

In response to the Syrian Arab Army’s rapid advance in the East Ghouta today, Jaysh Al-Islam accused the government of using missiles filled with chlorine gas; however, a senior officer in the military told Al-Masdar that these claims are lies spread by the Islamist rebels to justify their losses.

 

Since launching their massive East Ghouta offensive last Winter, the Syrian Arab Army has managed to seize more than 60 percent of the territory the Islamist rebels controlled in 2015, including the strategic Marj Al-Sultan Airbase and Jisreen Farms.

Al margen de ello el ejercito Sirio debe continuar con firmeza para erradicar terroristas de la zona.

Again massive and rapid adjectives for a year long offensive that gains territory in 100 meter increments.
