On Saturday, Syrian Air Force warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on militant positions in the vicinity of Zamaleka Bridge and in Wadi Ayn Tarma.
The stikes also targeted militant supply roads between Ayn Tarma and Jobar district in eastern Damascus.
From its side, Faylaq al-Rahman (currently controls Jobar and Ayn Tarma) claimed that it managed to destroy a Syrian Army tank and damage a BMP-1 vehicle in Ayn Tarma. Moreover, Faylaq al-Rahman claimed that it managed to repel an attack of the Syrian Army in the Zamaleka area east of Damascus.
A video showed yesterday the use of an ATGM by Faylaq al-Rahman in Jobar district. The missile is believed to be a TOW was used against a bulldozer of the Syrian Army.

It seems that some side succeeded in smuggling these missiles to the eastern Damascus area besieged by the Syrian Army. It’s worth mentioning that Faylaq al-Rahman is one of the allies of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham in Eastern Ghouta.
Jobar district and Ayn Tarma are the biggest threat to the capital Damascus. Jaish al-Islam, HTS and Faylaq al-Rahman have launched several attacks on the Syrian capital from these areaas. Militant groups also fire mortar shells at civilian areas in Damascus permanently from Jobar and Ayn Tarma.
