Syrian Army Seizes Back Control of Terrorists’ Key Base in Eastern Damascus
The army units earned victory after taking back control of the last tunnels dug by the terrorists linking al-Qaboun to Eastern Ghouta and cutting all the supply routes of the militants in the district which is considered as one of the most important bases of the terrorist groups in the region.
The militants in al-Qaboun had called for relocation from the district after the Syrian army’s astonishing advance and the army had suspended its operations in the region but the Takfiris’ missile and mortar attacks forced the Syrian troops to launch special military operations in the outskirts of Damascus and gain control of al-Qaboun district again.
The army could extend the range of its security belt around the capital and increase pressure on the terrorists in Eastern Ghouta of Damascus after this victory.
Earlier today, the Syrian army forces launched a fresh round of operations in al-Qaboun district to close off the entire tunnel network of the terrorists that links the Eastern and Western parts of the district, military sources reported.
The sources said that militants in al-Qaboun had recently asked for the evacuation of forces from the district and in response the army suspended its attacks on their positions but later the militants’ mortar and missile units targeted the army positions in the region, causing the army units to retaliate.
The sources further added that the army men have launched an operation in al-Qaboun to discover all the tunnels and underground paths that connect the Eastern part to the Western part of the district.
They added that the army has also pushed militants back from tens of building blocks in al-Qaboun.
