+18: Rebels sustain heavy losses as Special mission forces defend eastern Damascus

The jihadist rebels of Hayyat Tahrir Al-Sham and Ahrar Al-Sham keep attacking the key building of the criminal security in Harasta district of Damascus.

The Special Mission Forces (SMF) have succeeded – once again – in repelling the jihadists attack on the eastern gates of the capital, killing and injuring a number of terrorists.

They also managed to thwart the rebel offensive on the same key building in Eastern Ghouta’s Harasta, yesterday.

The Syrian Special Mission Forces are a Quick reaction force of the Ministry of Interior. They are tasked with defending against jihadist attacks on government-controlled parts of Aleppo and Damascus, in urban settings.
