According to a source close to Al-Masdar News, the Syrian Opposition militia, “Jaysh Al-Islam” (Army of Islam) has sent an envoy of dignitaries from their organization to meet with the Syrian Government in Damascus to discuss the ongoing Syrian Arab Army siege of the East Ghouta. The dignitaries comprise of village elders that represent the remaining civilian population in the city of Douma – their goal is to facilitate an agreement between the Syrian Government and Jaysh Al-Islam.

The dignitaries received the blessing of Jaysh Al-Islam leader, Zahran Alloush, to meet with members of the Syrian Government to negotiate a ceasefire in order to dissipate the violence that has engulfed this area in the Rif Dimashq Governorate.

Recently, the SAA’s advance into the Jobar District and the capture of the industrial city of ‘Adra has left Jaysh Al-Islam vulnerable to Syrian Air Force bombardments and infantry attacks.
