Patty Aguilar | 18 March, 2018, 22:58

Syrian Army units intensified on Saturday their military operations in Eastern Ghouta in Damascus countryside, inflicting heavy losses on terrorists, and at the same time continued to secure the safe corridors for the evacuation of civilians held hostage by terrorist organizations. "Field kitchens have been deployed and hot meals are being distributed to civilians at the checkpoints and in refugee camps", Zolotukhin said.

After a morning of calm, shelling and ground battles resumed across eastern Ghouta on Sunday afternoon, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said.

Earlier in the day, the official said that overall, more than 70,000 people had left Eastern Ghouta since the opening of the humanitarian corridors in late February.

"The army advances in recent days have piled pressure on the factions and every party wants to get the best deal possible", the source said without elaborating.

Hundreds of fighters have already handed themselves in during the last forty eight hours and begun reconciliation deals with the Syrian government, another rebel source in the area said. Al-Ikhbariya TV hailed it as a "major victory".

The army units advanced steadily from Hamouriyah town, which had been liberated from terrorists two days ago, and destroyed the fortified positions of the terrorist organizations at the outskirts of Saqba, continuing to advance in the residential neighborhoods in the depth of the town as the terrorists' ranks collapsed rapidly and many of them fled westwards towards the town of Hazeh.
