BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale advance in the East Ghouta region, today, seizing several areas from the Islamist rebels near the key suburb of Harasta.

Led by the Tiger Forces and 4th Division, the Syrian Army managed to split the East Ghouta region into three pockets after a short battle with the Islamist rebels.

Below is a virtual map that shows the Syrian Arab Army’s gains since they began their offensive on February 25th.

With the East Ghouta split into three pockets, the Syrian Army is now preparing to storm the Harasta suburb, which is considered an important stronghold for Faylaq Al-Rahman and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

Harasta is strategically located at the outskirts of Damascus, making it a top priority for the Syrian Army.
