DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:00 P.M.) – The Syrian government approved a request made by the last rebel faction in East Ghouta pocket for a ceasefire and resumption of talks, a Syrian official source said.

The call made by Jaysh al-Islam comes after a whole-night offensive launched by the Syrian Army against the militants’ positions whereby the government troops managed to fully liberate al-Riyhan town to the east, along with other territories to the west and southern outskirts of the rebel-held city.

According to an official reports, the rebel faction will most likely accept the terms of agreement as stipulated by the Syrian government i.e. evacuation to the country’s north, handing over heavy weapons and release of detainees.

The latest military onslaught was primarily launched – according to Syrian officials – with the objective to secure the prisoners detained by Jaysh al-Islam for years.
