On January 7, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) broke the Ahrar al-Sham Movement’s siege on the Armored Vehicles Base east of Damascus city after capturing the Grain mills area northwest of the base, according to the Syrian State TV.
Syrian pro-government sources said the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) supported the SAA final push towards the Armored Vehicles Base and destroyed several key positions of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement around the base and in the southern part of Harasta district.
Earlier, the SAA expanded its operations north of the Armored Vehicles Base and attacked several positions of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement in the northern part of Harasta district, which likely increased the pressure on the Islamist group.
The SAA is now evacuating the injured soldiers from the Armored Vehicles Base and resupplying its forces there, according to pro-government activists. In the upcoming hours, the SAA will begin securing the base from all sides and recapturing all the positions it lost in the southern section of the base.
