BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:05 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their assault in the eastern suburbs of Damascus this morning, targeting Faylaq Al-Rahman’s last positions inside ‘Ayn Tarma and Jobar.
Using surface-to-surface missiles, the Syrian Arab Army’s 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division heavily pounded Faylaq Al-Rahman’s positions in Jobar, causing significant damage to the militant defenses.
Following the bombardment, the Syrian Arab Army began their ground operation at 4:45 A.M. (Damascus Time), striking Faylaq Al-Rahman’s positions around the strategic Manasher Roundabout.
The Syrian Arab Army has been making significant progress inside of Jobar recently, capturing more than 20 building blocks over the last 48 hours.
Meanwhile, in neighboring ‘Ayn Tarma, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard is heavily bombarding the suburb; however, there has been no movement on the ground.
The main objective of the Syrian Army is to force the remaining militants in these suburbs to surrender their positions and accept a transfer to Idlib, which is similar to previous agreements.
