Syrian Army Imposes Control over Several Terrorist Positions near Douma



The Syrian Army troops, backed up by the country’s Air Force, drove Jeish al-Islam terrorists out of several key positions near the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta on Saturday.

The army’s elite forces, backed up by the artillery and missile units’ fire, stormed Jeish al-Islam’s positions West of Douma and seized the Southwestern farms between Mesraba and Douma towns.

In the meantime, the army aircraft pounded the positions and movements of Jeish al-Islam in Douma, killing and wounding several terrorists and destroying their positions.

The army started military operation after Jeish al-Islam violated the ceasefire agreement and shelled residential areas in Damascus suburb, killing or wounding almost 34 civilians.

Military sources said on Thursday that the third group of Jeish al-Islam terrorists and family members, consisting of 635 people, left Douma for Jarabulus on 13 buses through al-Wafedeen corridor.

They added that the Syrian army freed 13 civilians, including several women and children, who were kidnapped by Jeish al-Islam in Eastern Ghouta.

Meantime, field sources said that nearly 4,000 militants and their family members have left Douma since the start of the humanitarian ceasefire in Eastern Ghouta.
