Russia says the Syrian army has liberated Douma, the last Eastern Ghouta town under militant control, less than two months into its counter-terrorism operation in the suburban area near the capital, Damascus.

“The raised state flag over a building in the town of Douma has heralded the control over this location and therefore over the whole of eastern Ghouta,” Major-General Yuri Yevtushenko was quoted as saying by Russian media.

Eastern Ghouta used to serve as a launch pad for deadly terrorist attacks against residents and civilian infrastructure in Damascus.
