Syrian Army strikes back against US-backed forces in southeast Syria
Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), alongside the National Defense Forces (NDF), seized several points from the US-backed rebel forces in southeast Damascus, Al-Masdar's Ibrahim Joudeh reported from the capital city.
According to Joudeh, the Syrian Arab Army seized several points in the Dumayr region of rural Damascus, including the large hilltop of Tal Al-Abd, which is located southeast of the strategic Dumayr Airbase.
This latest advance by the Syrian Arab Army puts them in position to close in on the Dawkah area of southeast Damascus.
The attack by the Syrian Arab Army in southeast Damascus, tonight, came just hours after the US Coalition launched an airstrike against their advancing forces near the Al-Tanf Crossing in southeast Homs.
