More than 70 civilians, fighters and members were killed in Damascus and its eastern Ghouta during about 25 days since the start of Jobar and Ein Tarma clashes

The clashes continues between the regime forces supported by the gunmen loyal to them against fighters of Rahman Corps and the Islamic factions in places in Ein Tarma area and its valley in the Eastern Ghouta and the adjacent Jobar neighborhood in Damascus, where the regime forces are seeking to advance in more areas to separate the capital Damascus from the eastern Ghouta, by advancing g in parallel to AlMotahalik AlJanobi which separates Damascus from its Eastern Ghouta. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored during these clashes which took place on the 20th of June 2017 until the 13th of July 2017 casualties in the ranks of the fighters, the regime forces and the militiamen loyal to them and civilians.

Where the Syrian Observatory documented the death of 23 civilians including 5 children under the age of eighteen and 5 women over the age of eighteen, they were killed in the aerial bombardment and shelling by the regime forces using missiles believed to be ground-to-ground on Ein Tarma and the rest of areas in the eastern Ghouta, the Syrian Observatory also documented the death of at least 28 fighters of the factions in these clashes and the accompanying shelling, while the Observatory documented the death of 20 members of the regime forces and militiamen loyal to them in these clashes and in targeting by the factions.

the regime forces were able on Tuesday the 11th of July 2017 to advance and control the meat plant in the vicinity of Ein Tarma from side of the valley, while the regime forces controlled houses located to the east of the marble factory from the same area, the clashes were accompanied by intense exchange of shelling between both parties, which caused more casualties in the ranks of both of them.

Also the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights published earlier that 2 fighters of Rahman Corps were killed and 7 others were injured in the continuous clashes against the regime forces and militiamen loyal to them in the area of Ein Tarma Valley in the Eastern Ghouta, where the regime forces seek to achieve more advancement in the area and control more areas, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights published earlier that the regime forces managed, following violent clashes, to make a new advancement into Ein Tarma Valley and to take control of a block that consists of a warehouse and 4 houses. Casualties were reported at both sides but what has been confirmed so far is the death of 3 fighters of Al-Rahman Corps in addition to the injury of 12 others with various degrees of severity. Casualties among the regime forces were also confirmed.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights had also published about 3 days ago that the regime forces managed to take control of the marble factory and locations in its surroundings. This advancement comes as part of the quest of the regime forces to achieve an advancement into the area and reduce the size of areas controlled by the factions at the outskirts of the Eastern Ghouta, which is adjacent to Jobar, in an attempt to clamp down on Jobar and separate it from the Eastern Ghouta, thus forcing its fighters to withdraw from the neighborhood before besieging it. In addition, the regime forces managed to achieve a new advancement a few days ago into Ein Tarma area which is located at the western outskirts of the Eastern Ghouta, as they managed to take control of a block of about 10 houses near Ein Tarma from the side of AlMotahalik AlJanobi (the Southern Bypass), amid violent clashes in an attempt by Al-Rahman Corps to regain control over the area. Clashes were accompanied by heavy shelling by the regime forces and an exchange of targeting between both sides. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also published about 10 days ago that the regime forces managed to take control of a driving school near Ein Tarma village, amid several attempts by the regime forces to advance more in the area, while the factions were seeking to regain control over the area.
