BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:54 P.M.) – The Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group has released a video on its social media accounts of the capture of a textile factory in Damascus.
Earlier today, following a failed suicide attempt, Al-Masdar News reported that Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS), a coalition of militant groups, managed to partially fracture the Syrian Arab Army’s front-lines in Jobar, seizing the textile factory after a fierce battle that lasted for nearly two hours on Tuesday.
The video shows the textile factory located in an industrial zone of the capital city, which has been the scene of intense fighting between Tahrir al-Sham and the Syrian Army.
The HTS launched an offensive some days ago in an attempt to break the siege of the al-Qabun pocket.
Meanwhile, an Al-Masdar News correspondent in Damascus, has reported that airstrikes have been ongoing all day at a rapid and frequent rate. The airstrikes and explosions heard were reminiscent of Damascus in 2013 when the city was in a volatile situation of being captured by militant forces.
