Breaking map : Syrian forces divide East Ghouta into 3 parts, take key jihadist town
The Syrian Army scored a major breakthrough in East Ghouta today, making a number of strategic advances that have split the terrorist-controlled areas of the region into three parts and seen government troops take a key town.
In the early morning, the SAA’s elite 4th Division forces managed to finally encircle Ahrar al-Sham’s stronghold of Harasta, separating it from the Jaysh al-Islam controlled city of Duma.
Further south just moments ago, the Syrian Republican Guard took the town of Aftris from terrorist groups after a fierce battle to control its farms and outer defenses.
Whilst these advances happened, more militants and their families along with normal civilians fell into Syrian Army custody – all willingly did so.
