DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:15 P.M.) – The situation around the contested town of Rayhan is escalating quickly as Jaish Al-Islam and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continue to battle it out in the East Ghouta, the agricultural epicenter on the outskirts of Damascus.

Photos released by the Saudi-backed group show SAA corpses piled on top of each other in trenches after what Jaish Al-Islam said was an unsuccesful government assault.

Yesterday, another batch of Jaish Al-Islam photos showed three SAA soldiers dead on the same axis, thereby hinting at the intensify of the battle for Damascus’ eastern farmland.

Jaish Al-Islam did not specify its own casualties due to the skirmishes.

Meanwhile, the SAA’s 105th and 106th Brigades of the Republican Guard are proven far more succesful in the outer residential suburbs of Damascus, advancing in Ayn Tarma again today.

Ca. 10 soldiers lost, at least 6-7?
Horrible. The SAA back at its most atrocious and wasteful low tactical level.
