The Syrian army and its allies have reportedly repelled a major counter attack of Jaysh al-Islam militants at the army base (signal) in the Eastern Ghouta region near the Syrian capital, Damascus.

 

Holding this strategic area, the pro-government forces are keeping to pose a threat to cut off the Jaish al-Islam militants deployed in Tell Kurdi from the rest of militant-controlled areas in the regions.

 

Local reports indicate, that the Syrian army is planning an operation to encircle Tell Kurdi in the nearest future.
