The coordinated operation room, comprised of the militant factions of Jaish al-Islam, Ahmad al-Abdo Brigade and Faylaq al-Rahman, has continued its advance in Qalamoun area, capturing several sites including the Al-Afa’ei and Al-Batra’a mountain chains.

According to a statement released today by Jaish Al-Islam, the Islamist rebels have managed to take control of over 25km of ISIS-held areas in northeast Damascus countryside.

Is the SAA sleeping? Why are they just letting a potential enemy take hundreds of kilometers of land and expand their alleged legitimacy. They need to hurry up and secure all of Daesh’s Damascus holdings and launch their own Qalamoun Offensive before it’s too late. Liberate the Crossroads inbetween al Qaryatayn and South Palmyra and it will pay off in the long run.
