Jaish al-Islam announced Tuesday that it had retaken full control of an East Ghouta village close to its stronghold of Douma from regime forces, reported pro-opposition Smart News. The Syrian army tried to storm Medaa on Sunday. Pro-regime al-Mayadeen network reported Sunday that the army had captured Medaa and the surrounding farms, just as it “laid low large numbers of militants, both killed and wounded.” JAI spokesman Islam Alloush denied that narrative to Syria Direct on Monday, noting that the “school and the mosque,” two of the most well-known landmarks in the town, “are still under Jaish al-Islam control.” After regaining full control of the town Tuesday, rebel fighters captured the nearby a-Spidaj factories and village of Tel Asfar, reported pro-opposition Masar Press Wednesday.
