DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:00 P.M.) – The significant advance made by the Syrian forces against rebel fighters in rural Damascus has been tragically disturbed by a series of deadly tunnel explosions.

For the past two days, Failaq al-Rahaman rebel group has exploded several tunnels in Ayn Tarma neighborhoods, leaving scores of Army troops killed and injured.

The tunnels exploded were all located under buildings seized by the Syrian Army during earlier battles.

The huge explosions left 45 Syrian soldiers dead, and many others injured, most of them fight under the elite Republican Guards.

The recent ‘death trap’ tactic adopted by the local rebel group resolves around withdrawing from a building after booby-trapping an underground tunnel, and is followed to curb the Army’s advance achieved in the recent days.

According to a government official, the deadly explosions have killed and injured up to 134 troops.

i second that, however when you see what a small city looks like, you can grasp the difficulty of the task, Lets not forget that the wahabi illness spread unchecked for 4 decades around the world that means a few million willing to die, if push comes to shovel this war will be decider by an all out war on Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states , and only a 1999 Grozny style campaign could convince this retards

those blast can be achieved with about 250 kg of ANFO each, thats 750 kg total , thats less than pallet, they was besieged but in ceasefire so no ammo spending, and still smuggling is possible , SAA doesnt have the manpower to wate thight seal the siege.

Good reason to get the f*****g kid gloves off at last and use some effective weapons. Napalm, earthquake bombs. I read that they will now start filling tunnel networks with water, even if this is very destructive for buildings/infrastructure.

Están aislados los terroristas, ¿cómo ingresa armas y ,uniciones al lugar?
Debe haber mas control para que no ingrese ni siquiera comida para los mercenarios.
