Jaysh al-Islam militants engage Syrian Army positions with technical in rural Damascus (Credit: Jaysh al-Islam media wing).

BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – Jaysh Al-Islam is not surrendering the strategic town of Douma, the militant group’s leader Mohammad ‘Alloush stated this evening.

Rumors began to surface on Monday that Jaysh Al-Islam was planning to handover Douma to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), following their latest piece talks with the Russian military.

However, ‘Alloush was quick to quash the rumors, adding that any claim about Jaysh Al-Islam surrendering Douma is “a lie devoid of truth.”

The militant is currently in full control of Douma, a town that has been their stronghold since the start of the Syrian War.

It is easy for him to say, he is in London living the good life at the expense of the Saudi royals , and the rest are in Douma , and I hope the SAA will liquidate them completely because they are traitors to their nation and follows Syrians . Shame on them and their faulted believe .
No matter who you are religiously, the religion did not say to kill other people , if it did , it is certainly nasty religion.

After that Russians will claim they all cooperate with Al-Nusra (outlawed by UN including USA, Turkey and Russia) and start to exterminate them all. In this instant Turkey cannot say “No” simply because Russians are fighting Al-Nusra terrorists. Putin is a first-class player. By now Obama, Trump, Erdogan, Merkel, Teresa May,… Read more »
