The Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, backed by the 2nd Legion of the Special Forces, continued their rapid advance inside the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus tonight, entering the small village of Mayd’ani after capturing Mayda’a on Friday morning.

A senior officer with the 105th Brigade told Al-Masdar News on Friday night that the Syrian Armed Forces have already captured the eastern and southern districts of Mayd’ani, leaving only a small area left under the control of Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam).

If the Syrian Armed Forces can take control of Mayd’ani, they will be in position to enter District 7 of the East Ghouta for the first time in nearly four years.

More importantly, the capture of Mayd’ani will create an imperative buffer-zone around the strategic village of Mayda’a, which was recently seized by the Syrian Armed Forces on Friday.

Clashes are currently ongoing inside of Mayd’ani; however, local sources indicate that the village is on the verge of being captured by the Syrian Armed Forces.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
