Syrian Army backed by Hezbollah fighters resume attack on rebels in rural Damascus.
Two days after repelling the Faylaq Al-Rahman offensive in the East Ghouta region of Greater Damascus, the Syrian Republican Guard, backed by Hezbollah, resumed their offensive at Al-Muhammadiyah and the Jisreen Farms.
The 102nd Brigade of Syrian Republican Guard and Hezbollah reportedly broke-through Faylaq Al-Rahman’s front-line defenses in the Al-Muhammadiyah area, reaching the strategic Arab Houses after a violent battle with the extremist rebels.
Following their advance at Al-Muhammadiyah, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah made another series of gains at the Jisreen Farms, killing a large number of enemy combatants from Jaysh Al-Fustat and Faylaq Al-Rahman, ABNA reports
Heavy clashes are still ongoing tonight, as the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah continue their advance in the East Ghouta’s farming region.
