Rif Dimashq - SMART

The al-Rahman Legion, the Jaysh al-Islam, and the Islamic Ahrar al-Sham Movement of the Free Syrian Army clash with the loyalist forces and their loyal militias in Eastern Ghouta, Rif Dimashq governorate.

Activists told SMART that the clashes are taking place in the city of Misraba, the town of Kafr Batna, and the outskirts of the cities of Hammouriya and Irbin. The activists pointed out that the clashes are concentrated between Kafr Batna and the town of Jisreen. The opposition factions captured a number of members of the loyalist forces.

The activists also reported that Russian and loyalist warplanes targeted the areas of the ongoing clashes.

SMART is communicating with the opposition factions to learn about the latest military developments in the region. SMART has not received any response so far.

On Sunday, the loyalist forces seized the city of Saqba and the towns of Kafr Batna and Jisreen.

After weeks of military escalation by the Syrian government and Russia, the loyalist forces separated Ghouta into two parts. The northern part includes the city of Duma, controlled by the Jaysh al-Islam, and the city of Harasta, controlled by the Ahrar al-Sham Movement. Loyalist forces cut off the supply lines and roads between the two cities.

Loyalist forces also seized major cities in the southern part, controlled by the al-Rahman Legion. The loyalist forces seized the city of Saqba and the town of Kafr Batna a few hours afterseizing the towns of Hammouriya and Jisreen. The al-Rahman Legion still controls the cities of Irbin and Zamalka, and the nearby neighborhood of Jobar.
