A unit of Special Forces from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) conducted a mission behind enemy lines today, in East Ghouta, Damascus. The unit was acting on intel provided by local spies in the area.
The coordinated attack took place on a farm, located near the Al-Shifounyah roundabout, which was being used as a base for Islamist rebels, near the Hawsh al-dawahra axis.
6 militants were simultaneously killed by Syrian Special Forces, including a field commander, while they were meeting and making plans to attack government-held areas, and SAA checkpoints.
Once the operation was completed, the Syrian Army targeted the surrounding areas with artillery, allowing the unit to successfully retreat without incurring any causalities.
