BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has launched a massive counter-offensive in the East Ghouta after spending several days defending the strategic vehicle base in the Harasta suburb.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus, the Syrian Army’s 105th and 106th brigades of the Republican Guard, alongside the Qalamoun Shield forces, unleashed a flurry of surface-to-surface missiles on Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham’s positions.

Following the missile strikes, the Syrian Arab Army made their first move, capturing four building blocks around the municipal building.

In addition to capturing the four building blocks, the Syrian Army is now pushing towards the Al-Barazi Hospital in a bid to retake this imperative site in the Harasta suburb.

The Syrian Army has also destroyed a tunnel that was dug under the vehicle base by Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

Al-Masdar’s field correspondent added the army told him that over 40 militants have been killed in the last 24 hours, including several field commanders.
