BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham are on the verge of surrendering the Qaboun and Barzeh suburbs of east Damascus, a military source told Al-Masdar News on Monday evening.

According to the military source, the rebel forces and Syrian government met on Monday to discuss terms of surrender for the first time in both Barzeh and Qaboun.

In addition to Barzeh and Qaboun, the jihadist rebels are also negotiating the surrender of the Harasta suburb that is located along the strategic highway to the Homs Governorate.

The terms of surrender for these suburbs is similar to those of the Wadi Barada deal; this means that if the jihadist rebels agree to concede Qaboun and Barzeh to the government, they will be transported to the Idlib Governorate.

 

To pressure the jihadist rebels into accepting terms of surrender, the Syrian Arab Army’s 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division has continued their assault on Qaboun and Barzeh, hitting several enemy targets inside these Damascene suburbs.

Both Barzeh and Qaboun are important because these suburbs are used by the rebels to smuggle supplies from Damascus City to the East Ghouta region.

Bravo: The main benefit is – more peace for Damascus. Surrendering more of Damascus will consolidate HTS-Qaeda fighters for their inter Jihadist civil war in Idlib. So that the SAA can free even for more resources to track the foreign paid professional Jihadists all over Syria.

There are locals too : the local ‘Brotherhood’ already tried to overthrow Haafez in the 80’s, you know. There are also amateurs. Most of cockroaches from Europe have been brainwashed by some Salafshit ‘imam’, often while jailed as it seems that the biggest % has radicalised in such context…

It will be a great hit to the so called jihadists in Eastern Qhouta. I think their resistance will last longer than Wadi Barada and Khan Al Sheikh. I have really missed Khan Al Shaykh and its walls and the so called jihadists’ backs on its walls. 🙁

Sir Almasdarnews, could you please tell me why you do not post my comments on time. I posted as fast as this news published online as the first person (at 06:02 AM) and now I see other comments after my posted comment are left at here and still my comment is not shown. I do not understand your act. It has not been your first time during this month. Your previous service of posting comments was much better.
