Provinces, SANA – Syrian Arab Army units on Monday continued military operations against Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorist groups affiliated to it in Eastern Ghouta in Damascus Countryside, in parallel with continuing to secure the safe corridor for the evacuation of civilians from Ghouta.
SANA’s reporter to Ghouta said that after regaining control over al-Nashabiye town and a number of villages and farms, army units started new operations against the positions of Jabhat al-Nusra and affiliated terrorist groups, as the army achieved significant advances in eradicating terrorists in the area.
The reporter added that terrorist organizations are in a state of disarray and collapse due to the huge advances of the army and the huge losses in personnel and equipment they suffered.
The reporter indicated that army units operating at the northern front of the Ghouta have tightened the noose on Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists who are positioned in some parts of Harasta city, inflicting heavy losses upon them in the arms and personnel.
Meanwhile, the terrorist groups positioned in Eastern Ghouta are still preventing the civilians to exit through the safe corridor to al-Wafideen Camp. The army and the authorities have made all logistic preparations to receive the civilians who want to exit Ghouta to transport them to a temporary housing center in al-Dwair.
