In Eastern Ghouta, clashes between the SAA and Jaish al-Islam resumed in the village of Beit Naim where the SAA shelled several positions of Jaish al-Islam with heavy rockets. Jaish al-Islam responded attacking SAA fortifications in the vicinity of Beit Nam.

Militants of the Al-Rahman Corps and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) launched a joint attack on positions of Jaish al-Islam in the Misraba area in Eastern Ghouta. The Al-Rahman Corps and HTS seek to expand their influence in Eastern Ghouta with this move.

It’s worth to remember that Jaish al-Islam militants had launched two attacks on the positions of the Al-Rahman Corps and HTS in the northern part of Eastern Ghouta. However both attacks failed.

    These syrian militants are just traitors to their country since they are helping USA-NATO-Israel to destroy their own country. How easy is to deceive these people with the magic words “democracy” and “freedom”, “tyrant”, etc. I am sure that some of these people are fighting because of their believes, but fool people are everywhere in the world

      If you read Eva Bartlett , these so called “Syrian militants” are not Syrian at all , but rather Wahhabi Sunni’s who over took the original Syrian uprising . They took over by force . She got this info from Syrians who laid down arms , and rejoined with the Syrian people . Very few are actually Syrian .
