In relevant development in the province on Friday, Syrian Army soldiers stormed Jeish al-Islam’s positions in Eastern Ghouta, capturing more lands between two small but key towns in the region.
The army soldiers inflicted major losses on the Jeish al-Islam militants and captured approximately 700 meters of territory between Hawsh al-Dhawahra and al-Shifouniyeh, as they managed to split-up these Jeish al-Islam towns from one another.
