Syrian Army Advances after Tough Battle with Terrorists East of Damascus
The army men, led by the 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, captured several building blocks around the strategic Harmalah Tunnel this morning, killing and wounding several militants from Faylaq Al-Rahman and Al-Nusra.
Following this advance in Ein Terma region in Western Ghouta, the Syrian Army’s 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division restarted their ground operations in the nearby Jobar region.
Both the 42nd and 105th brigades are storming the defenses of the terrorists in a new bid to take control of these strategic regions in the Eastern countryside of Damascus City.
Relevant reports said in mid-August that the Syrian Army and Air Force targeted terrorist groups’ defense lines in Eastern Ghouta and Western Qalamoun, inflicting major losses on the militants.
The army’s missile units shelled heavily terrorists’ positions along the road connecting the regions of Jobar and Ein Terma, killing and wounding a number of militants.
In the meantime, the army aircraft bombed badly ISIL’s strongholds in Qara’a and al-Jarajeer heights at border with Lebanon, inflicting major damage on them.
