DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:50 P.M.) – Fierce battles continue to disturb the capitals cautious silence as the second wave of jihadi offensive was almost contained.

For the past two days, government and opposition forces – led by Jabhet al-Nusra – traded blows in an area separating Jobar from al-Qaboun neighborhood in a daring attempt made by Islamist rebels to open a supply route linking the two rebel-held districts.

Today, the government troops managed to recapture the Fabric Factory along with several buildings  as the militants were forced to retreat eastward.

A video released by  Syrian Ministry of Defense shows the severe clashes which have taken place in eastern suburbs of Damascus.
