Eastern Ghouta: Full Liberation Getting Closer

According to SANA, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) together with Tiger Forces continue to secure the exit of hundreds of civilians from terrorist held areas in Eastern Ghouta.

Last Saturday 24.04.2018, the towns of Saqba, Kafr Batna, and Hamouriyah were liberated. Syrian authorities immediately commenced attending health care needs and sending trucks with food supply to assist the immediate needs of the liberated population.

In addition, authorities also began an assessment of the damaged infrastructure to restore essential services and start reconstruction.

By Sunday a second batch of 81 buses begun the transfer of 5435 terrorists and their families from Jobar, Ein Tarma, Zamalka and Erbin to Idlib in north-west of Syria.

Last week 10 buses transferred 500 of Faylak Al-Rahman terrorists and their families from Harasta to Idlib. Some of the terrorists were released from prison, a deal that secured the release of 13 kidnapped Syrian soldiers. The SAA also secured the release of eight civilians who had been kidnapped and held hostage for over four years.

Also on Sunday, the Army secured another 1100 civilians, mainly women, children and elderly people, through Al-Wafideen safety corridor, while the Army took full control of Haza town.

Over 80% of Eastern Ghouta is now under Syrian Govt control. There were many moments of joy as liberated civilians reunited with family members outside East Ghouta. A SAA soldier shed torrents of tears as he reunited with his mother who he had not seen for seven years.

The City of Damascus is still in morning for the tens of civilians murdered by terrorists bombings last week. On Saturday evening another rocket hit the Faiha Sports Centre killing a young soccer player, Samir Massoud, an injuring at least six other.

The terrorist group Jaish al-Islam has decided to remain in Douma to continue terrorising and killing civilians, while in Afrin at least 170,000 civilians have been displaced by Turkey backed terrorists.

The SAA and Tiger Forces will continue their campaign of liberation of Eastern Ghouta and the rest of the country until every corner of Syria is free from terrorists and every imperial and neo-colonial invading force.

Damascus/Deir Ezzor, SANA – Syrian Arab Army units on Saturday entered Tishreen neighborhood at the eastern outskirts of Damascus city, beginning wide-scale and precise combing operations in the area.

SANA’s correspondent said that army units are now deployed in all parts of Tishreen neighborhood and are now dismantling IEDs and landmines planted by the terrorists in the area.

Hundreds of gunmen and some of their family members exited Tishreen neighborhood and Barzeh area on Monday as per the settlement agreement reached to end all armed manifestations in the area.

On a relevant note, SANA’s correspondent said that combat operations in al-Qaboun neighborhood have ceased completely as of noon on Tuesday after terrorist organizations in the area announced that they accept the settlement and that their remaining members will leave.

The correspondent said that the entirety of al-Qaboun neighborhood is now quiet following violent clashes between Syrian Arab Army units and terrorist organizations that have transformed the neighborhood over more than 4 years to a hotbed and used it to target neighboring areas with shells.

The terrorists surrendered after a few hours from the army establishing control connecting al-Qaboun to Erbin in the Eastern Ghouta area in Damascus Countryside. That tunnel was the last one leading to the Ghouta west of the international highway and terrorists had been relying on it in carrying out operations targeting the army and civilians in the area.

In Deir Ezzor province, army units carried out military operations targeting ISIS gatherings and movement axes in Deir Ezzor city and its surroundings.

SANA’s correspondent in the province said Saturday that the army units hit ISIS targets in the neighborhoods of al-Sheikh Yassin, al-Hamidiyeh, Kanamat and in the surroundings of the Airport, leaving many terrorists dead and injured and destroying their weapons and ammunition.

Later, a military source said that an army unit eliminated 10 terrorists from ISIS in the surroundings of al-Maqaber (cemeteries) area and al-Orfi neighborhood in Deir Ezzor.
