Pro-government sources also revealed that the SAA is now planning to launch a counter-attack around Harasta district. The sources revealed that units of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) supported the Ahrar al-Sham Movement attack on the Armored Vehicle base.

Meanwhile, the Ahrar al-Sham Movement confirmed that it captured several buildings inside the base and released videos of its fighters inside it.

According to opposition sources, the Ahrar al-Sham Movement attack on the Armored Vehicle Base was very large. The Ahrar al-Sham Movement and its allies advanced towards the base from southern, western and eastern directions. The Ahrar al-Sham Movement also targeted the base with a VBIED and used heavy weapons during the attack, including two up-armored battle tanks.

The SAA will likely recapture all the positions inside the Armored Vehicles Base from the Ahrar al-Sham Movement in the upcoming days. However, the attack revealed that radical Islamists are still strong in the Eastern Ghouta region. Due to this, the SAA next big battle might not be in Idlib governorate, but in Eastern Ghouta.

    A real civil war In israHELL against zionists , not a staged proxy foreigners-terrorists’s from overseas abroad civil war as seen here in this article infographic map , a real civil war against zionists in israHELL to liberate arab Palestine from occupation is immenent underway !

    1. You can call me Al says:

      It maybe a little bit more complicated (and better than that), the orthodox jews have taken to the streets (the ones with strange hair does and bash their head on the wall) because Netynutjob has called them in for conscription duty, for the first time ever – their protests lead with banners such as “We are Jews and will not fight a Zionist war” + numerous political parties as you say are against the genocide of Palestinians + the land grab.

      SWEET – get the beer and popcorn in.

      1. Brother Ma says:

        Well done non -zionist jews!

        1. You can call me Al says:

          Does that mean my comment was OK or not?

          If it was good – tick up
          If not – tick down

          The things are there for a reason you lazy so and so.

          1. Brother Ma says:

            Al, take a chill pill.i pride myself on ticking up or down always.i honestly thought i had .i must have thought the one check was mine.

            I have heaps of responses from people that are positive with no checks and i dont get mad.if you were not sure if i was approving or not of your statement just ask .

            Why is the check so important to you? Is there a way to make money or something?

          2. You can call me Al says:

            No worries mate – part of me was jesting, another part serious as some commenter had a crack at me once.

            Every now and again, I just come up with this crap, ignore me please; especially Friday and Saturday !!>.

    destroying the new world order

  3. Dejan says:

    They must be finished like in eastern Aleppo

    1. You can call me Al says:

      Well they SHOULD have been finished.

  4. Deo Cass says:

    The problem is the re-supply of weapons to the terrorists through pseudo UN humanitarian convoys. A better scrutiny of what goes inside those truks is needed. A secondary minor problem is black market sale of weapons to terrorists through individuals in the Syrian government controlled areas. Again, strict scrutiny must be put in place by the Syrian government forces and if need be the suspension of so called UN aid to the terrorists until the areas are liberated. After all Saudi Arabia is being tacitly supported for imposing a total blockade of Yemen and therefore no one has a right to complain.

      Persian iranian troll with russian butchers thousand of jets bombs sieging years still behaving like monkey armies only deserved to be tunnelled bombings

      1. Allen Flick says:

        Hush now baby, it will all be over soon. You can go into mourning.

    2. Brother Ma says:

      All correct.what i would like is a little mossad like action by the russians.what do i mean? Well russia,should warn all countries with an open letter and with official diplomatic notes that any person and the transport used by them, in taking arms to headchoppers will meet with really bad accident. An accident no person or vehicle comes back from.

      It does not matter if these arms came from official greenlighted shipments from zionato un or whatever. Any persons or vehicles will be “accidented”.

      To lessen diplomatic outrage these accidents should mainly occur over international airspace or international waters and there should be plausible deniability.

      Then we will see how much arms and funding will come to headchoppers in syria!

      Why did i call it mossad style? Remember all those iranian nuclear scientists who died killed on the streets driving to work in syria?remember all those russian diplomats who all died of natural causes within weeks of each other?

      Perfect targets? One like the big civil airplane flying czeck or serb arms via uzbekistan or whatever.you know the ones uncovered by the hot bulgarian lady reporter a few months ago.also thise israeli tankers loading up with stolen syrian ,kurdo oil in turkey .

      Are you listening russians? Maybe you need me to brainstorm for you every so often.

  5. Joe says:

    The de-escalation allowed them to restock and attack.
    So these fellas are taking advantage now since most SAA forces are else where

    1. You can call me Al says:

      Exactly as before.

      1. Joe says:

        All the timing quite related to Lebanon problem .

        They get all the Terrorists to reactivate all over and move on Lebanon?

  6. Rob says:

    As America fight at a single front at a time in Eastern Syria similarly Syrian government army should have to fight at a single front in Abu Kamal. With Abu Kamal front now Syrian government have open two new fronts for themselves one in Hama and the other in East Ghota.

  7. Richard M says:

    Green Daesh put all their eggs in one basket, hoping that they could “get thar fustest with the mostest” as NBF was fond of saying. Didn’t happen though. Now they are catastrophically weakened and SAA will soon be liberating this pocket!

  8. Borna Artuković says:

    Eastern Ghouta is priority for saa and allies ! For god sake Damascus is still in danger with jihadis in eastern ghouta ! but this is the hardest battlefield in whole syria .. big cemetery with lots of ruins .because of that they lose so many soldiers . :(
    jihadist must have some smuggling route in that area . they are in besieged area and still manage to get supplies ?!

  9. Brother Ma says:

    Note the typical alphabet soup of all these headchopping free syrian army types ; all done to confuse tv-watching average joe housewives in zionatoyanquiland so that they keep supporting the war effort

  10. Brother Ma says:

    Could a native syrian or native arabic speaker tell us what accents they hear in above videos.

    Are they native syrians in the videos or mixed with foreigner headchoppers?
    What countries have they come from?
