In response, the Western media launched a large-scale information campaign for creating a negative background to hinder the return of Syrians back home. Gradually a series of publications appear where people cautiously declare in favor of repatriation initiative. Also, the horrible stories of returned citizens who face various difficulties can be nominated for Oscar.
The situation around Eastern Ghouta continuous to be intense due to the regular mortar shells of Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham and Faylaq Al-Rahman militants. At the same time, the humanitarian corridors are daily fired by snipers to prevent the civilians from fleeing Eastern Ghouta to Damascus.
However, the Syrian army units continue to initiate new assaults on the positions of terrorists to recapture the area and liberate the local population. Tonight, the government forces stormed terrorists’ positions after the several-hour-long daily truce in Eastern Ghouta and managed to cut off one of the main supply routes of the militants in the region.
Currently, the situation around Eastern Ghouta can only be described as drastic. Jaysh Al-Islam along with Faylaq al Rahman militants are blocking civilian evacuations via humanitarian corridors, preventing the delivery of humanitarian aid, and evacuating the wounded. The humanitarian pause came into effect at 9 a.m. on Thursday upon the initiative of the Syrian Government and Russia. In the area of Vafidin, the government forces have already created block posts, and the medical staff is ready to provide the necessary medical care for the sick and injured. Moreover, special buses will evacuate civilians to safe areas.
According to the Syrian Deputy Minister of Justice, Tahir Asmadi, the number of claims of Damascus citizens suffered from shelling and terrorist attacks has increased significantly over the past month due to the intensification of the terrorists who have increased the number of their attacks on the residential areas using mortars. The jihadists continue to commit terrorist attacks in Eastern Ghouta.
According to SANA, the Syrian Foreign Ministry sent a letter to the UN Secretary-General and the head of the Security Council on the attacks carried out by armed terrorist groups on Damascus and its countryside, killing and injuring dozens of innocent civilians, affirming that terrorist officials and others who provide cover for these terrorists are complicit in these crimes.
