BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) assumed full control of the Al-Qaboun, Tishreen, and Barzeh districts of east Damascus, last week, after the official rebel surrender of this area to the government.

Hezbollah’s official media wing captured the first scenes of the rebel-held parts of these aforementioned districts that were surrendered to the government as part of the peace agreement.

The video footage above shows the Syrian Arab Army encountering never-before seen tunnels, as well as a significant number of IEDs (improvised explosive device) that were placed around the rebel-held districts.

Thanks to the destruction of nearly 25 tunnels under Al-Qaboun and Tishreen over the last three months, the Syrian Arab Army was able to secure the surrender of the rebel forces in order to restore the government’s control over this imperative area in east Damascus.
