BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – Jaysh Al-Islam published an info-graph on Saturday that claimed at least 101 Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers were killed this year in the East Ghouta region of Damascus.

In addition to killing an alleged 101 soldiers, Jaysh Al-Islam claimed they captured three military personnel, while damaging three three tanks and one shilka.

According to a Syrian military source in Damascus, the numbers posted by Jaysh Al-Islam are inaccurate, adding that just over 30 soldiers were killed in the fight against the Islamist group in the East Ghouta.

The Syrian Army and Jaysh Al-Islam have only clashed once this year, so the numbers are likely exaggerated.
