Rif Dimashq - SMART

Clashes kill and injure fighters of the Commando Forces, affiliated with the Ninth Division. The forces arrived recently to support the loyalist forces in the clashes against factions of the “They Have Been Wronged” battle in Harasta, east of Damascus.

A military source, who asked not to be named, said that 15 commando fighters were killed and five were captured over the past 24 hours in the clashes with the “They Have Been Wronged” factions.

He added that the factions destroyed T72 and T82 tanks, in addition to a military truck that belongs to the loyalist forces.

The source said that the Commando Forces arrived with the Elite Forces who are affiliated with the Fourth Division to lift the siege of the loyalist forces and the supporting militias in the Vehicle Management.

The “They Have Been Wronged” factions published a video showing a group of hostages with their faces covered, saying that they are captives. One of them identified himself as one of the Third Division's fighters, who were captivated near the Harasta mountains during an attempted break-in, after the regime’s officers escaped on Tuesday night.

Activists said that 10 fighters of the Republican Guard surrendered to the “They Have Been Wronged” factions in the Vehicle Management area.

Loyalist reinforcements, such as the Qalamoun Shield militia, arrived recently at the outskirts of Harasta. The loyalist forces also depended on the local militias whom they made agreements with in the area Rif Dimashq, such as a troop led by a former officer in the Free Syrian Army that headed to Harasta from Moadamiyet Al Sham.

Failaq Al Rahman, affiliated with the FSA, said that they gained control of new loyalist-controlled points in the Vehicle Management. He described it as “the second line of defense” and reaching “the depth of the enemy”.
