BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 A.M.) – A Syrian military source told Al-Masdar News on Thursday morning that despite moving their forces to the front-lines in Douma, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) will not launch an attack on the town.

According to the source, the reason for the Syrian Army’s hesitation to enter Douma is due to the large number of prisoners still held in Jaysh Al-Islam’s jails.

The source estimates that total number of prisoners still held in Jaysh Al-Islam’s jails is over 1,000; these prisoners include soldiers, civilians, and government workers.

Jaysh Al-Islam was able to leverage this information in order to hold off the Syrian Army from launching their long-awaited military operation in Douma.
