Syrian Gov’t Forces Keep Marching on Terrorists’ Centers in Eastern Damascus
Syrian government forces engaged in fierce clashes with the terrorists of Jeish al-Islam in al-Reihan region and along the road connecting Tal Kurdi to Douma.
In the meantime, Syrian army units hit terrorists’ centers hard near the town of al-Shifouniyeh, and captured more positions.
Farms around the towns of Jesrin and al-Mohammadiyeh were also the scenes of heavy fighting between the Syrian soldiers and Jeish al-Islam militants.
Syrian fighter jets, meantime, played a crucial role in beating the terrorists back from their positions in Eastern Ghouta.
Douma is the main stronghold of Jeish al-Islam terrorists in Damascus province.
Military sources said on Monday that pro-government troops made significant advances in the battle against the terrorists of Jeish al-Islam in Eastern Ghouta in recent days, and were preparing to take another major stride in completing a siege in the region.
“The government forces inflicted major losses on the militants in their latest assault in al-Reihan region and are resolved to capture the two regions of Tal Kurdi and al-Reyan to cut off the militants’ supply route to Douma and complete the siege on the militants in Eastern Ghouta,” the sources said.
“The Syrian fighter jets, for their part, pounded the terrorists’ gatherings near the town of Arbin in a region between the city of Douma and the town of al-Shifouniyeh, while ground troops stormed terrorists’ positions in al-Marj region,” the sources added.
