BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has reversed all of the jihadist gains in east Damascus today after a fierce 16 hour long counter-offensive that began last night.

Led by the 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army managed to retake the electrical facility last night; this paved the way for their assault on the Mercedes Shop and Alboumar Garages in Al-Abbasiyeen.

On Monday morning, the Syrian Arab Army was able to break-through the jihadist front-lines along the ‘Abbasiyeen-Jobar axis, resulting the in seizure of all lost points.

  1. Why SAA didnt make any SVBIED counter till now … they had lost thousands of soldiers because of them . They need to found a counter ASAP or more souls will be dead !! 😦😦 RIP brave soldiers .

  2. La ofensiva por parte del ejercito debe continuar y no dejar descansar a los terroristas hasta la victoria final.
    En la zona por constantes ataques, ya no es momento de negociación sino de rendición y sin condiciones.
