BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – Residents of the Syrian city of Douma celebrated the end of the East Ghouta, today, as the last militants from Jaysh Al-Islam leave the town.

The footage features people holding Syrian national flags and raising them over the half destroyed buildings along the city’s main street.

The Syrian Army has reportedly established full control over the city of Douma, which was under control of the Jaish al-Islam militant group.

As it was stated by the Russian Centre for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties, Syrian government forces have taken control of the entire Eastern Ghouta province.
