On February 3, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured several buildings around the local administration office in the northwestern part of the Irbin district east of the Syrian capital Damascus, according to pro-government sources. The SAA also captured several buildings in the southern part of the Harasta district north of Irbin.
Pro-government activists reported that the SAA had destroyed a media center of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement in Irbinwith Golan heavy rockets. Warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) supported the SAA attack and conducted several airstrikes on positions of Faylaq al-Rahman and Ahrar al-Sham in Irbin and Harasta.
From its side, Faylaq al-Rahman announced that its fighters are currently trying to repel the attack of the SAA on Irbin. However, the group didn’t release any details about the ongoing clashes there.
An officer of the SAA told South Front that the SAA is currently trying to reach the road between the distrcits of Irbin and Mudayrah. If the SAA achieves this goal, it will be able to cut all the supply lines of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement and Faylaq al-Rahman around the Armored Vehicles Base northwest of Mudayrah.
