A Syrian military source says government forces have secured a humanitarian corridor for civilians to leave the militant-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta near the capital city of Damascus.
The unnamed source, in a statement released on Sunday, announced that army troopers were protecting the safe corridor set up for the evacuation of civilians via al-Wafideen checkpoint, stressing that preparations were underway to deliver food aid to civilians trapped in Eastern Ghouta, Syria’s official news agency, SANA, reported.
The statement added that Syrian government forces had advanced on several fronts in the militant-held enclave, liberating a number of farms and villages from the clutches of foreign-sponsored Takfiri militant groups.
It pointed out that army troopers had wrested complete control over the town of Nashabiyah plus several villages and farms, including Otaya, Hosh al-Salihiyah, Hosh Kharabo, Haarma and Beit Nayem.
The statement further noted that the operation had inflicted heavy losses upon terrorists from the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, and extremists allied with them.
A number of militant headquarters, tunnels and fortifications in addition to their equipment were destroyed as well.
