The Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) – unleashed a series of powerful attacks on the Islamist rebel fighters of Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam), killing over 40 combatants inside the East Ghouta (collection of farms) on Monday.

The Syrian Armed Forces began their assault at the East Ghouta town of Jisreen on Monday, launching numerous attacks on Jaysh Al-Islam’s defensive positions at the Plum Orchards before they were able to break-through the aforementioned Islamist group’s frontlines.

As a result of this powerful assault, the Syrian Armed Forces captured the Plum Farms, while also killing an estimated 30 enemy combatants, including the following: Ramiz Dawoud, Ahmad Mundo, Raslaan Qaweedar, Samer Wahiba, and Akram Ka’kat.

South of the ‘Adra Industrial City, the National Defense Forces repelled another infiltration attempt by Jaysh Al-Islam on Monday, killing over 15 enemy combatants, including ‘Abdullah Al-Rawja (Yemeni), Karimo Hamami, Salim Adem, Zakarya ‘Abdel-Hadi, ‘Abdel-Rawouf Taha, Mansour Al-Samadi, and Sa’eed Al-Sa’our.

The Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) increased the intensity of their airstrikes above the rebel-held city of Douma, striking Jaysh Al-Islam at the Wafadeen Camp, Al-Shabis Factory, and Al-‘Aliyah Farms before the Syrian Armed Forces would participate in the battle.

Following the airstrikes from the Syrian Air Force, the Republican Guard stormed Jaysh Al-Islam’s positions at the Al-Shabis Factory, where they were able to entrench themselves in the southern perimeter of the building after a series of fierce clashes.

According to a field report, the Syrian Armed Forces killed the following enemy combatants from Jaysh Al-Islam: “Abu Malik”, Ammar Atayya, and Marwan Al-Tayar.
