Syrian Army Captures More Buildings In Qaboun, Militants Fight Each Others In Eastern Ghouta

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued its advance in eastern Damascus on May 4.

The SAA, led by the 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, stormed the remaining militant defense lines in the southeastern part of the embattled Qaboun district capturing a large number of buildings from Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the Al-Rahman Corps.

At the same time, it was reported that dozens of militants from HTS and the Al-Rahman Corps fled the Al-Qaboun district and arrived the Eastern Ghouta through undisclosed tunnels in eastern Damascus. After abandoning Al-Qaboun district, they will now help in the fight against Jaish al-Islam in the Eastern Ghouta.

Some pro-governent sources say that the Al-Qaboun district is expected to be recaptured by government forces in the coming few days as a result of another withdrawal agreement with local militants. Negotiations have reportedly started on the issue.

If the negotiations fail to achieve a success, clashes will continue in the area. However, even in this case, government forces will have a upper hand in the battle for Qaboun.

Meanwhile, a fighting between armed groups continued in the Eastern Ghouta area in the Damascus countryside. The Al-Rahman Corps and its allies from HTS launched a counter-attack against Jaish al-Islam in the town of Arbeen.

The Al-Rahman Corps and the HTS seized a major part of the town after a fierce battle with Jaish al-Islam members.

According to local sources, the Al-Rahman Corps and the HTS surrounded the remaining positions of Jaish al-Islam in Arbeen, trying to force the remaining militants to surrender. Nonetheless, Jaish al-Islam members have refused to do this so far.

Jaish al-Islam is now under attack in several locations in Eastern Ghouta where the Al-Rahman Corps and HTS are trying to seize bases of Jaish al-Islam in this rural area.

    • Joe Doe

      I think SAA is waiting for Christmas. The SAA progress is very slow or almost no progress considering that all terror faction fighting each other

      • Wahid Algiers

        Fighting in streets and houses is very hard. Give them two days to break through towards the Special Forces Command and more days to get the rest.

        Bear in mind, in east Damascus the SAA are dealing with worst kind of urban warfare – against entrenched, well armed, militants in fortified concrete structures with deep supply tunnels – it takes lot of time and lot of manpower to besiege these militants in built-up districts.

      You guys need to stop talking about christ like that. Hell is real please change. Jesus saves. Everyone who is not saved will go to hell. Torments 24/7, you cant eat or sleep or breathe. Your always going to be thirsty. Just because you cant see God doesnt mean he isnt real. Bad things happen because satan wants us all to go to hell and he wants to distract of from our salvation and being saved look into Jesus. This is a message for whoever reads this to act now before its too late. Noone ever knows when their going to die. Be reassured by God that when you die you will not go there. And im not talking about just be nice and humble. STOP SINNING. its sad that many whom you call brave heroes and terrorist form saa and al qaeda are down there. Please open your eyes to the truth. May God touch everyones heart who reads this and God bless You in Jesus name Amen. Thank the lord our savior for this message i bring to you.

        the fuck is wrong with you.

          Perhaps hore ten has hope and faith.
          And you hope for a great war within Syria that will consume all of mankind.
          Have you ever heard of “Armageddon”, and where it will take place ?

          • Jesus

            The war in Syria will not consume mankind, Armageddon is the valley of Megiddo in Israel. The armies of the world will be stationed in that valley after the conquest of Jerusalem.

      • Gary Sellars

        FFS buddy, its the 21st century, not the 12th…

      • Jesus

        Very good.

  • Jasminko Grdic

    Jaish al-Islam should call SAA for help… time to stop this .At end all need to live again toghether like everywhere in the world.

    • Samuel Boas

      What the hell is wrong with you. You think the world is a fary tale place? Jaish al islam are filthy terrorists, they deserve no mercy from the SAA. They are probably lucky if the SAA gets them alive, if other groups get them they wish they’d be dead already.

      • PZIVJ

        JAI is peaceful with SAA in most areas. SAA also allowed them to transfer some forces along govt controlled roads to fight ISUS. This is a moderate group.

        • Thegr8rambino

          They are Saudi backed terrorists bro

          • PZIVJ

            I have no love for them.
            But right now they are killing HTS Jihadist in E Gouta.
            This is good news for SAA.

          • Thegr8rambino

            I have no love for either but isn’t HTS Saudi too? Or they were formerly al nusra? Yes it is good news for SAA I’m sure :)

        • Jasminko Grdic

          This is what i have also see and whta is need to be….

          All this groups are terorist or get support from Terrorist Saudi, Qatar… Some of them stared this war because they wanted to change something, they was not happy how the country was… The other like Alnusra, Al Qaida, ISIS are product from Turkey, Israel, Qatar, Saudi, Jordan that only wanted to destroy Syria with no reason, they don’t interested in problems from small ppl

          At the End all groups are bad and in war many bad things happen , also SAA for sure have some bad black sheeps

          • Wahid Algiers

            Yes or maybe, but SAA did not start the war.

          • Jasminko Grdic

            The one who started the war are the same one who don’t wan’t to stop it…and they are not from Middle East they are Israel, UK, France and US and then Qatar and Turkey.

            I know , we in Yugoslavia fight for 5 year and now we drink coffe togheter again just like before…. the only thing that is different is that PPL from outside are gone…just like Syria need to get ouit of this stragers who fight against Syria

  • gravity

    Good move for all SAA soldiers who participated to clear rodents from Syria land. Now either they will go back to Saudi Arabia or they will come to US as refugees and that was only chance their survival. Those people brought suffering of cilivians to peaceful country. If we are talking about is the only arab country which respect Human rights for all of its citizens. When we look at Saudi Arabia there were alot of human violations hence many tend not to speak about because they are United States friends.

  • Thegr8rambino

    Very nice!!! Keep killing each other rats you are making SAA job very easy!!! Hehe

    • Wahid Algiers

      I assume they are fighting against each other to get the last food stores under own control.

      • Thegr8rambino

        hopefully the only thing left will be the food LOL
