The Hezbollah media wing in Syria also reported that the SAA captured more buildings around the Abu Baker mosque north of the Armored Vehicles Base. Moreover, pro-government sources claimed that the SAA is now only few meters away from the main gate of the base. However, these claims have not been confirmed yet.

During its advance, the SAA killed several fighters of Ahrar al-Sham and two commander of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), according to pro-government activists. The SAA also captured a member of Ahrar al-Sham.

Syrian warplanes conducted dozens of airstrikes on positions of HTS, Ahrar al-Sham and Faylaq al-Rahman in Harasta and Irbin districts and on several positions of Jaysh al-Islam in Duma district.

The SAA also destroyed Ahrar al-Sham fortifications around the Armored Vehicles Base and in the northern part of Harasta with Syrian-made Golan heavy rockets.

The SAA attack in the northern part of Harasta district could indicate that the SAA is going to make an attempt to secure the entire district, not only the Armored Vehicles Base.

    Israel is a foreign terrorist organization in Palestine using the Jewish religion. Israel have no religion. If You wanna see real Jew then watch this video.
    There is no difference between ISIS and Israel both are Trump sponsored global terrorist organizations used to take lands from foreign countries. Palestine will be soon free like South Africa from US sponsored terrorist organization Israel.

  • Free Salafist Army has expended their reserves in a futile attempt to take the vehicle base. Now they will lose Harasta, Irbeen, Mudayrah and any temporary gains they made near the base! This will be remembered as the Beginning of the End for the East Ghouta Cauldron. Green Daesh should start burning their heavy weapons and ammunition while they get ready to be Green Bused to Idlibstan/Bilalstan! :D

    Trump indirectly attacks Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen through Israel, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, FSA, SDF/YPG terror groups.

    Russia, Syria, Iran and Lebanon must use their own intelligence organizations to identify these terror elements and bring them to justice.

    Palestine is a tiny country that cannot be divided. Since 1944 Palestinians fight just by own resources i.e. stones and knives. Palestinians have made some rockets but these are not effective.

    Since 1948 Israel receiving latest heavy weapons and fighter jets from America. Now Israel producing these heavy weapons themselves but to Palestine no country have given heavy weapons/technology.
    Now Palestine is a highly vulnerable nation in this world. Israel taking their homes by gunpoints.

    Therefore, due to air strikes the servicemen and civilian casualties of Palestinians are hundred times higher as compare to Israel. If a country like South Africa can liberate from apartheid dictatorship then why not Palestine. Palestine just needs support of friendly countries that is political, economical and military. Keeping a country isolated in the world communities is no good.

    650,000 illegal Israeli settlers have secretly entered in Palestine from Germany, France, UK, USA, Poland, Ukraine, Russia etc and now living in illegal settlements (colonies) on Palestinian land, demolishing Palestinian homes and leaving innocent families and children homeless.

    4.7 million Palestinians are classified by the U.N as refugees that were displaced from their homes by Israeli forces by gunpoints….. The Archbishop Tutu and Nelson Mandela as well as other South African leaders have reported that the Israeli apartheid is worse than in South Africa. “We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians” – Nelson Mandela

      Screw Nelson Mandela. He was a terrorist who ruined South Africa. South Africa used to be a 1st world country before the black supremacist communists took over.

    A rather dubious report as ass-adophyle tweeter @sidirenko reports on #harasta 200m in a LATER tweet and pro rebels tweet an here unreported counter counter attack by AAS and lastly, RUAF does not bomb very near to SAA lines, so SAA is not very near to AAS.

    • PZIVJ

      Your posts are rather dubious! TWEET TWEET TWEET :D

      It doesn’t look like your Jew world order terrorists buddies are doing to well.

      • dutchnational

        SAA indeed does not do well in Harasta. Likely they will win in the end though. At the cost of having lost 6 generals, very many lower officers and soldiers, an untold number of armoured vehicles in different states of disrepair and much loss of face.

        I am really surprised at the persistence of the the rebels here. Fighting against such odds says much about their valor. I do not favor islamists at all, but one must say, they are putting up a good fight here, whatever their motivation.

        • RichardD

          You’ve been running your anti Syria Zionist propaganda criticizing the SAA. When it’s obvious to everyone that the Syrian government coalition has won every battle, or contained the terrorists in place for latter clearing, and increases the government footprint at the expense of the regime change elements week after week, month after month. You’re a sore loser spouting sour grapes because your Jew world order terrorist puppeteers that you’re supporting are being defeated on a regular basis.

            I dont think he is a jew, probably some sunni wahabist.

          Still surprised you are saying the same thing about the SAA , difference is the martyrs will be remembered well as soon everybody forgets the dead enemy commanders but remembers their numbers , this has been a huge loss for the gunmen rapists.

          They will lose everywhere as the SAA can now bring more forces to bear elsewhere, of which they are eradicating HTS forces swiftly as they are in retreat towards Abu Duhur which soon will be under siege.

        • Toni Liu

          Just eat your defeat terrorist supporter who care about your jihadist sicko, more of them death better the world we living, you just win in your wild jihadist dream, in reality you just vermin like them, better to see syria live in peace rather under your jihadist vermin

        • Weldon Cheek

          Youve got more front than Harrods! You are AGAIN eating your words as the SAA complete another victory over “pretty good fighters” you clown,victory is victory defeat is defeat,go find another post to predict the outcome of ,if it carrys on like this your poison touch alone will win the war for Assad!!

        • Eskandar Black

          terrorists on express train to hell, at least now you know they lost.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      The siege has been lifted and the attempts by the AAS and company has become fruitless and pointless as the SAA secure more areas in Harasta and the amount equipment seized from them is a huge amount of heavy weapons and vehicles. Looks like you fail to learn Dutchie even they are learning somewhat, poor Bilal had to leave the area their driver took them to as it was under SAA siege and soon control.

      “dutchnational” you are probably a refugee on welfare.
