BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored a major advance inside the east Damascus suburb of Harasta, a source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the military source, the Syrian Army’s Republican Guard and 4th Division managed to recapture all of the territory they lost to the Islamist rebels two weeks ago, including the Karajat Al-Hajz (Harasta bus station).

In addition to recapturing the bus station area, the Syrian Army has retaken many blocks around the municipal building, paving the way for their special forces to secure this part of Harasta.

The Syrian Army is now in position to finally secure the other flanks around the vehicle management base, while also opening a new supply line to this strategic military installation in east Damascus.
