The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) renewed their large-scale offensive in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus on Tuesday, targeting the strategic town of Al-Reyhan that was originally under the control of Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam).

Led by the 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Armed Forces began the day by capturing several sites from Jaysh Al-Islam, including the Reyhan cemetery, grammar school, and mosque.

Following the capture of these sites, the Syrian Armed Forces established fire-control over Al-Reyhan, leaving only a small pocket of resistance left at the northern perimeter of this key town in the East Ghouta.

Once Al-Reyhan is fully captured, the strategic hilltop village of Tal Kurdi will fall shortly after, due to the fact Jaysh Al-Islam will be encircled by the surrounding hills.
