DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:15 P.M.) – Led by the Republican Guard and the 4th Division, Damascus-based Syrian Army units launched a major operation in the Harasta-Erbeen sector of east Damascus.

The offensive took off following a barrage of Joulan and UR-77 missile strikes on the targeted area of operations. Infantry units began storming the area between the towns of Harasta and Erbeen in an attempt to wedge between the two jihadist strongholds, long a thorn in the throat of the loyalist forces in east Damascus.

So far, the operation is a notable success as dozens of building blocks fall under the control of the government forces in the region surrounding Othman Mosque amidst a limited collapse in the jihadist lines.

According to reliable sources, dozens of Faylaq al-Rahman and HTS fighters perished or became buried alive under relentless bombardment by UR-77 explosives.

An authoritative source had informed AMN a few days earlier that a major offensive was to kick-off in Harasta aimed at liberating the entire district. Of course, that would mean cutting off the town’s supply routes from Erbeen if a true breakthrough was to be achieved- a reality currently being sculpted into effect.

Good. But stretch their resources –
And drive up from the south, through Aftris.
And from the northeast, through Al Shaffoniya.
Split this jihadist nest up.

I think this war will last for fifteen plus years. Remember the Lebanese Civil war…there are far too many external actors involved in this civil conflict.

These handsome young men should be at a university learning sciences, accounting, the education of their dreams and preparing their lives for their future instead of having to fight for their right to live in peace in their own country. I’m American and if my country is involved with this I personally apologize.
