Supported by the air force’s heavy airstrikes, the Syrian army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard managed to capture the Ein Tarma’s Meat Market and the surrounding buildings after fierce battle with Faylaq al-Rahman terrorists.
Meanwhile, another unit of the 105th Brigade, alongside the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) and National Defense Forces (NDF), stormed the militant-held Taybeh District of Jobar in Northwest of Ein Tarma, resulting in a series of clashes this morning.
Fierce clashes are still ongoing at several axes in Eastern Damascus as the Syrian army is trying to win the upper-hand in this important area near the capital.
On Thursday, the Syrian army soldiers continued military operations against the terrorists in Eastern Ghouta, further advancing in Ein Tarma.
The army forces continued clashes with the terrorists near the meat packaging company and al-Khair Markets, regaining control of several points.
A military source said that the Syrian troops have rapidly advanced in the region, and added that a number of terrorists were killed in clashes.
The source stressed that the army wants to separate Jobar district from Eastern Ghouta by advancing in regions parallel to al-Moltahlaq al-Janoubi, between Eastern Damascus and the Western parts of Eastern Ghouta.
Meantime, the Syrian army could retake control of houses in the Eastern parts of the Marble Factory.
The Syrian army units also advanced along the Southern bypass of the highway that runs between Zmelka and Jobar, capturing several buildings in the course of their offensive.
