Syrian military raises flag over East Ghouta town
The Syrian military held a small ceremony, today, inside one of the East Ghouta towns they captured from the Islamist rebels.
According to Syria-based Damascus Now, the Syrian military raised the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic over a municipal building inside the East Ghouta town of Hazzah.
Hazzah was one of the first densely populated towns in the East Ghouta to fall to the Syrian Arab Army during their month-long operation in this region.
The Syrian Army is expected to raise the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic over several other East Ghouta towns this week.
