Syrian Army announces full liberation of Eastern Ghouta
The General Command of the Syrian Army and Armed Forces has announced that Eastern Ghouta in the Damascus countryside is now completely terrorism-free following two months of operations in the region.
Following a number of concentrated and powerful military operations in the past week, units from our brave armed forces and its allies managed to cleanse Eastern Ghouta in all its neighborhoods and (surrounding) villages, from the armed terrorist organizations after driving out all terrorists from the city of Douma, the final base for terrorists in Eastern Ghouta," said a statement released by the military late on Saturday.
Recently, Moscow brokered an agreement between the militants based in Eastern Ghouta and the Syrian government, enabling the former’s safe exit to Jarabulus, a militant-held town in northern Syria.
Russia said hundreds of Takfiri Jaish al-Islam Takfiri terrorists and their supporters had left Douma, according to the deal.
"At the same time we are resisting with our air defense capabilities to the tripartite aggression which was staged by the United States of America, France and Britain against numerous targets in Syria, "added that statement.
