Rebel Gains Near Zabadani and Jobar
Rebel fighters earlier today overran two regime checkpoints near the town of Al-Zabadani after fierce clashes with regime forces and the Hezbollah militiamen, killing and injuring around 40 pro-regime militiamen and capturing equipment and ammunition.
Violent clashes broke out last night between rebels and regime forces near the Southern Bypass in eastern Damascus, ending in rebels’ capture of the strategic Zamalka Bridge which connects the district of Jobar with Damascus.
Rebels also took control of several regime positions points on the periphery of Jobar after fierce clashes yesterday’s night. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
