Syrian government forces have liberated the Al-Bashoura Air Defense Base in the Eastern Ghouta region from Jaish al-Islam militants, according to pro-government sources.
On February 28, units of the Tiger Forces and their allies entered the area of the base and forced Jaish al-Islam members to withdraw from it. Militants conducted a counter-attack overnight, but failed to achieve any progress. On March 1, government troops started securing the area.
Following a success in the area, the Tiger Forces and other pro-government factions are now able to develop momentum in two directions:
- the 274th Regiment Base and Shifuniyah
- Hawsh Khanim
