Recently, Rebels were able to advance and take most fo al-Jam’iyat area, getting closer to Mezzeh Airbase. The Regime trying to prevent Rebels from taking the National Hospital and Sakinah Shrine, otherwise Rebels may advance more easily toward Mezzeh Airbase. It’s quite hard for Rebels to launch huge offensive to enter the airbas, but it is possible for Rebels to destroy parts of the airbase by their heavy military equipment if they will be able to reach it.
