On Saturday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a counter attack against the Ahrar al-Sham Movement around the Armored Vehicle Base south of Harasta district east of the Syrian capital, Damascus, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria. However, no SAA advances were yet reported.

Opposition sources claimed that Syrian warplanes carried out airstrikes on positions of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement inside the Armored Vehicle Base. According to reports, 37 fighters of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement were injured in the airstrikes. The sources claimed that the bombs contained “toxic gas”. These claims were not supported by any evidence.

Another militant group, Faylaq al-Rahman, announced that it joined the Ahrar al-Sham Movement in its attack on the Armored Vehicle Base on Saturday. At least one tank of Faylaq al-Rahman attacked the positions of the SAA inside the base from the southern direction.

80% of the Armored Vehicle Base command section is under the control of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement. Most of the important positions inside the base are still under the SAA control.

The SAA is now working to recapture the command section and the section 446.
