EAST GHOUTA, Syria – Syrian government forces led by the elite Tiger Forces launched a daring night raid against the positions of Jaish al-Islam’s and liberated several sites.
The most significant capture was Hawsh al-Sawahira and its surrounding orchards. After liberating this site, they Tiger Forces would then go on to capture the strrategic Shifuniya Crossroad junction.
The reason for the night raid is because of the Russian-imposed daily humanitarian ceasefire from 9:00 A.M.-2:00 P.M. local time.
The advances made by the Tiger Forces are only conducted with close artillery fire backing and the coordinated air strikes from the Russian and Syrian air forces.
