BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:35 A.M.) – Over the last 48 hours, the Syrian capital has witnessed Al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood linked jihadist militias conduct two counter-attacks against a key Syrian Arab Army base located in the eastern district of Harasta.

Even after lifting the siege on the military vehicle base in Harasta several days ago, the Syrian Army has still been made to endure two powerful counter-attacks by jihadist militias against the installation and the newly established supply line running to over the last 48 hours.

Although both assaults, led by car bomb attacks, have been successfully repelled, they nonetheless prove that jihadist fighters are not yet prepared to ditch their efforts to take the base despite very high losses.

Amazingly, rebel forces maintain their offensive posture against the military vehicle depot despite being driven back in Harasta’s Al-Ajmi neighborhood by Syrian troops who have taken nine building blocks around the Abu Bakr Mosque during the last 12 hours.
