In Eastern Ghouta, opposition continued throughout the day between the Syrian Arab Army (CAA) and the radical opposition factions. Artillery of government forces fired on militant areas in the settlement of Haza, Jobar and Ain Tarme. In addition, clashes between the army of Bashar al-Assad and the militants of the radical opposition were recorded in the vicinity of the settlement of Misrab.
The Syrian army took control of the settlements of Mazraha and Azizat Abesan, located southeast of Hanassera (Aleppo Province). Government troops occupied the settlements after lengthy battles with the Dzhebhat an-Nusra group (banned in the Russian Federation). At the end of the day, it became known that the CAA, with the support of the Russian Aerospace Force, took control of the city of Ramla.
Syrian law enforcement agencies have prevented a double terrorist attack in the administrative center of the province of Homs: the terrorists with suicide belts were arrested near the building of the headquarters of the Al-Baath party and near the city's cultural center.

More than 20 civilians in the province of Deir ez-Zor suffered during a crossing over a minefield left by terrorists of the IG (banned in the Russian Federation) during the retreat from the settlement of Abu Hashab in the north-west of the region. The militants of the IG, meanwhile, are preparing to transfer their detachments from the Abu Hammam and Khadzhin populated areas on the left bank of the Euphrates to Abu Hardub and Abu Hassan on the right.
