Syrian Army's Ambush in Eastern Damascus: Scores of Terrorists Killed

A group of terrorists were ambushed by the Syrian Army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) in the strategic village of Reihan near Douma in Eastern Ghouta. As result, dozens of terrorists were killed and wounded, the Fars news agency reported, citing unnamed local sources.

According to the sources, the pro-government forces are currently trying to capture Reihan, so fierce clashes between terrorists and Syrian soldiers are ongoing inside the village. The sources noted that terrorists of the Jaysh al-Islam (previously known as the Liwa al-Islam) group have called on their comrades to help. They also noted that if Syrian troops seize back Reihan, they would also surround Tal Kurdi and would approach to surrounding Douma.

Meanwhile, over 200 terrorists laid down their arms and ended the fight against the Syrian Army in Elhameh region in Western Ghouta in Damascus province.

At the same time, a national reconciliation was violated by terrorists in al-Qodsiyeh. They tried to storm government positions, but faced demonstrations of civilians, who called for the deportation of those terrorists, who do not want to join the peace agreement.

According to Monday’s reports, a commander of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, Abu Hamza al-Ordoni, as well as 36 his comrades were killed during clashes with other terrorist groups in eastern Qalamoun region in al-Reihan in Eastern Ghouta.

At the same time, there was a heavy fighting between the Syrian Army and terrorists in Jobar in the eastern countryside of the city of Damascus. As result, several terrorists were killed, while others were wounded.

According to Saturday’s reports, the Syrian Army and the NDF entered the town of Elhameh, accompanied by the local tribal leaders, and regained control of Elhameh in Western Ghouta of the province of Damascus, after several days of fierce clashes with terrorist groups. Protests against terrorist groups were held by residents of Elhameh town in the past few days. People called on terrorists to lay down weapons or leave the town.

  • Great job. More strategy has been needed for a while now. Instead of killing 1 to 1 ratios. SAA needs to make sure that for every SAA solder they loose, the terrorist must loose 3 lol. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8a7dc376c59d592b401153298c4f7d66d95267a239bc0e40e1fb81e6d330dbe0.jpg

      can’t argue with Assad on that. Anyway killing ratios are already more than 1:1 in favor of the SAA. Especially in the last few months (with the start of the jihadist “offensive” in south Aleppo), the ragheads lost scores of personnel and equipment, and as far as one can gather from public sources, the situation has turned into one where the Army has now a sort of decisive momentum country-wide. This means that although it’s early to predict how much the war will go on, if there isn’t any significant strategic change, the SAA will regain all the areas currently in hands of Al-Nusra, Zinky and so on. At that point, we will see what happens with ISIS: the US is clearly involved, along with Israel in preventing the SAA to attack it, as it was their ruse to enforce “regime change” in Syria, and they cannot afford to let the legitimate government to both destroy their hopes and pass as the one who did the most to rid the world of the calyphate. Likely, many things will still happen until that point, so we’ll have to wait and see.

    The rebels know they can just lay down their weapons and (temporarily) surrender to get out of a dicey situation. Meanwhile they are part of the same groups which beheaded captured Syrian soldiers, mortared schools and hospitals and kidnapped and terrorized civilians.
    It would be better if the Syrian army destroyed more of them because you can never trust who willingly engaged in atrocities against their own country.

      I think Syrian Govt. trying to speed this up to an end, but I agree with you too. It is better to kill this garbage then let it go.

    “Protests against terrorist groups were held by residents of Elhameh town in the past few days. People called on terrorists to lay down weapons or leave the town.” — So the Syrian people are starting to stand up to the terrorists! Now the terrorists fight the Syrian Govt army AND the People! Perhaps the MSM can spin this?
