Islamist Rebels Seize Army-Held Positions in Syria

CAIRO – Syria’s former al-Qaeda affiliates, Fateh al-Sham Front and Ahrar al-Sham Islamist armed group, seized control on Sunday of four Syrian army positions in the neighborhood of Jobar, on the outskirts of Damascus, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

These factions began their attacks on government forces by blowing up two car bombs in two different areas in Jobar, the London-based group said.

Government forces, meanwhile, attacked the armed groups’ positions with artillery and mortars.

The group added that there were casualties on both sides, without specifying the number, noting the fighting continued between government troops and the rebel groups.

Since March 14, the Syrian army and its allies have maintained a siege on the rebel-held neighborhoods of Barza, Qaboun and Tishren, on the outskirts of Damascus.
