BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 A.M.) – On Sunday, forces of the Syrian Army’s elite Republican Guard seized the stronghold town of Beit Naem in Damascus’ East Ghouta region from Jaysh al-Islam militants.

The operation represented the first major blow to be delivered by the Syrian Army to armed rebel groups in the southern sector of the East Ghouta enclave and served to destroy defense lines which had been unbreachable for years.

The Republican Guard assault units involved in the capture of Beit Naem comprised mostly of storming troops and heavily-uparmored T-72 main battle tanks acting in the fire support role.

With Beit Naem now under their control, Republican Guard forces will soon conduct new operations to seize the nearby town of Al-Muhammadiyah and, possibly, the town of Ash-Ash’ari.

Recently, the Republican Guard’s Facebook page released photos of some of the armored elements and assault troops which partook in the Beit Naem operation.
