(London, UK – 12:05 P.M.) The Syrian Army, backed by other pro-government forces, has advanced against Islamist militants in the capital city of Damascus, over the past few hours.
Troops from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) were able to storm areas under the control of terrorist groups in East Damascus, near the contested district of Jobar.

Tanks and other pieces of armour suppressed the militants, while soldiers pushed forward. Footage of the assault was recently posted on social media.
Militants launched a surprise offensive in Jobar approximately a week ago. They initially captured a considerable amount of territory, but according to some sources, pro-government forces have rolled back all their gains.
