BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) 4th Mechanized Division announced on Monday evening their primary role in the upcoming East Ghouta offensive.

According to the 4th Division, their forces will lead the offensive at the Harasta-Douma axis, which is considered one of the most volatile fronts in the East Ghouta region.

At the Harasta-Douma axis, the 4th Division will be battling the well-armed and battle-tested forces of Jaysh Al-Islam, who have repelled every offensive by the Syrian Arab Army at this front.

Leading the 4th Division’s operation will be the elite 42nd Brigade (Ghiath Forces); they previously led the Syrian Army’s successful offensives in Darayya, Khan Al-Sheih, and Beit Jinn.

The 4th Division’s assault is expected to commence in the coming days, as the Syrian and Russian air forces ramp up their operations over the East Ghouta.
