BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 P.M.) – Last week, the Syrian military and their Russian counterparts offered the Islamist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman a ceasefire in exchange for their commitment to expel the Al-Qaeda linked Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham militants from the East Ghouta region of Damascus – they refused.

Since then, the Syrian military has unleashed a vicious assault against the Islamist rebels in both Jobar and ‘Ayn Tarma, using surface-to-surface missiles to inflict as much damage as they can on the enemy defenses.

Led by their elite 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is committed to expelling all militants from Jobar and ‘Ayn Tarma by deploying similar tactics to those used in previous battles at Darayya and Khan Al-Sheih.

The use of sophisticated missiles, followed by swift ground attacks, has allowed the Syrian Army to avoid high casualties, while also forcing the Islamist rebels to reconsider surrendering these east Damascus suburbs.

Unlike other units in the Syrian Army, the 42nd Brigade (AKA Ghiath Forces) has a large arsenal of sophisticated missiles that have played an imperative role in their successful operations in rural Damascus.

With nowhere to retreat, the Islamist rebels are quickly finding themselves in a world of trouble, as they suffer daily under the relentless missiles and artillery shells fired by the Syrian Armed Forces in the area.

Country areas too.
There are lunatic asylums for them…
Anyway, why do you think they all have Moon or Moon-crescent on their flags and are lunatics? “Luna” means… Moon (in Latin)!
The expression “Eat s**t and bark at the moon” especially targets lunatics…

This determination endures at least for 3 months now, but it looks like nothing happens…

I guess it is more a “world of rubble” by now. However, these rats and roaches don’t care so much as they live and move around underground at the frontlines. One should consider to just flood these areas to flush them out or let them drown in order to save ammunition and soldiers lives. As water is precious in Damascus I would suggest to use the city’s never ending supply of sewage for that. The effect could be even better. Basically a counter-flush and the culprits may be identified by their smell already.
