BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) battled militant groups at the strategic vehicle base in the Harasta suburb of the East Ghouta, Monday.

Scores were reportedly killed in the fight, including a large number of militants from Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Faylaq Al-Rahman, and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

Since the militant offensive, the Syrian Arab Army has been able regroup and launch a counter-attack to recapture several areas they lost over the last few days.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus, the Syrian Army has already captured several points, including four blocks near the municipal building.

The Syrian Army is now pushing towards the Al-Barazi Hospital in a bid to retake this imperative site from the Islamist rebels.
