On March 3, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces backed up by the Russian Aerospace Forces captured the strategic towns of Utaya, Hazrama and al-Nashabiyah in the southern part of the East Ghouta pocket, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.

The SAA captured the towns of Hazrama and al-Nashabiyah on February 25. However, a counter-attack by Jaysh al-Islam forced the SAA to withdraw from them back then.

Furthermore, Syrian pro-government sources confirmed that the SAA’s 4th Division had repelled an attack by the Ahrar al-Sham Movement on its positions in the Harasta district in the northern part of the pocket. SAA soldiers killed over 50 fighters of Ahrar al-Sham, according to the sources.

Meanwhile, Jaysh al-Islam claimed that its fighters had repelled an attack by the SAA on their positions in the town of al-Rayhanah in the eastern part of the East Ghouta pocket and had killed 12 SAA soldiers. However, pro-government sources reported that units of the Tiger Forces had manged to capture all the farms north and north east of al-Rayhanah.

The towns of al-Rayhanah, Shaffoniya, Bayt Na’im and Hawsh al-Ash’ari are the next targets of the SAA and its allies, according to local observers. Syrian opposition sources said that the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces are already targeting the militants’ positions in these towns.

    Looks that the Orcs will try to hide in western part! “Unfortunately”, they forgot about the Syrian advance on Harasta!

    • Feudalism Victory

      Strategic mistake losing food source

  • Orcs put so much effort into fortifying the Western Front that they left the Eastern Front weak. Now they pay the price for being stupid mindless Orcs!

  • Serious

    Hopefully, the SAA didn’t implement the ceasefire asked by the west to support their terrorist buddies.

    Never collaborate with terrorists and their supporters.

    The capture the line Ryahan-Misraba-Beit Sawa-Jisrin (towns inclusive) should be the first goal for SAA. Subsequently capture Modira and so split EastGhouta into north and south pocket. In 3rd and 4th stages dissolve them.

      Army has managed to seize at least half of Ash-Shifunyah following 24
      hours of violent clashes with Jaysh al-Islam fighters.

      • David BlackBeard

  • Potato Potato

    I remember before the ground offensive, moderate head chopper supporters were claiming SAA will “not advance an inch”. Yeah right…

    • Icarus Tanović

      Yeah right, that’s right.

    Death to all wahabies!

    With the 5 hour cessation in the battle for East Ghouta only begun 30 minutes ago, I really hope there is some good news about to be relayed. As always our hearts, minds and support for those who continue to put their lives on the line in order to make Syria whole again. And, by so doing will help drive the wedge of decency and freedom back into a world that has become deformed over these past 30 years because “good men did nothing, evil almost triumphed”. It will be written: Stopped in Syria!

    The map is changing fast as the headchoppers are being whacked. The terrorist enclave has just been cut in half with the SAA and Hezbollah commanding the high ground and controlling major road axis. The headchoppers supplies are being cut, unless their US and Zionist masters directly step in, they are kaput.
