The Syrian Arab Army's 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard launched a counter-offensive in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus on Monday, targeting Jaysh Al-Islam's (Army of Islam) defenses at the key town of Al-Reyhan.

The 105th Brigade's assault began on Monday morning, when their forces, alongside the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), stormed the western district of Al-Reyhan, recapturing several areas en route to the Tal Kurdi axis.

Syrian Arab Army's 105th Brigade and their allies captured the football fields and the Paint Factory on Monday after a fierce battle with Jaysh Al-Islam near Tal Kurdi's outskirts.

The Syrian Armed Forces are still attacking Al-Reyhan at the moment, as they attempt to capture the remaining sites in the west district that are under Jaysh Al-Islam's control, Almasdar reported.
