Damascus Countryside, SANA- Thousands of civilians, who were besieged by the terrorist organizations inside Eastern Ghouta, have exited through the safe corridor of Hamouriya that was opened by the Syrian Arab Army on Thursday.

The besieged civilians were used as human shields by terrorist organizations.
