Furthermore, sources from the SAA denied the claims about arresting soldiers working for Faylaq al-Rahman in Jobar and Ayn Tarma fronts.
Pro-government activists published a video of the meat company’s battle in Ayn Tarma area. The SAA managed to capture it last month after weeks of clashes with HTS and Faylaq al-Rahman fighters.
