BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:05 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored another major advance in the eastern suburbs of Damascus this week, capturing new ground in Jobar after a fierce battle with Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Faylaq Al-Rahman fighters.

Led by the 40th and 42nd brigades of the 4th Division, the Syrian Arab Army pushed east from the Al-Manasher Roundabout towards the strategic Ataya Buildings, where they were confronted by a large Faylaq Al-Rahman and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham force.

Intense clashes would ensue for several hours on Friday before the Syrian Arab Army was able to break-through the enemy’s front-lines and capture several buildings at the outskirts of the Ataya area.

During this operation in Jobar on Friday, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division managed to kill several Islamist rebels near the Ataya area, including the Faylaq Al-Rahman commander ‘Ali Al-Zibaq.

The Ataya Buildings overlook a large portion of Jobar, which makes it a primary objective for the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command in Damascus.
