On September 27, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Republican Guard ambushed a group of Faylaq al-Rahman fighters in Ayn Tarma area east of the Syrian capital Damascus, according to pro-government sources.

7 fighters of Faylaq al-Rahman were killed and several others were injured in the ambush.

The SAA also targeted shelled positions of Faylaq al-Rahman and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) in Ayen Tarma area and Jobar district east of Damascus city with Syrian-made Volcano and Golan heavy rockets.

From its side, Faylaq al-Rahman announced that its fighters ambushed a group of Syrian soldiers from the SAA 4th Division in Ayn Tarma. Moreover, Faylaq al-Rahman announced that its fighters destroyed a T-72 tank of the 4th Division.

Another tank, a Shilka vehicle and a bulldozer of the SAA were damaged by Faylaq al-Rahman fighters.

Meanwhile, Jaysh al-Islam claimed that it repelled an attack of the SAA on its position in al-Rehan area in the eastern part of the Eastern Ghouta region, on September 26.

Jaysh al-Islam claimed that its fighters killed 11 SAA soldiers and damaged a T-72 tank of the SAA in the clashes around al-Rehan. Jaysh al-Islam also announced that it lost only 3 fighters in the SAA attack.

The recent developments in Eastern Ghouta can be considered a partial collapse of the de-escalation agreement in the region. If Faylaq al-Rahman continues to host and to protect HTS in Eastern Ghouta the de-escalation agreement will likely fully collapse soon.

    Exterminate these filthy terrorist traitors. Exile their families and “supporters”, if the misbegotten sons of camels have any…

      This sounds dreadful I know, but I would not exile the families, I would eliminate them.
