BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 A.M.) – The Russian military began to setup humanitarian corridors around the East Ghouta region of Damascus this weekend, a military source told Al-Masdar News last night.

Similar to the humanitarian corridors in Aleppo, these areas will be strictly demilitarized and not used as a launching point for any Syrian Arab Army (SAA) attack against the Islamist rebel forces.

A military source told Al-Masdar that the primary humanitarian corridor will be setup at the Wafiddeen Refugee Camp, which is located near the Islamist stronghold of Douma.

Civilians and militants will be given access to these humanitarian corridors in the East Ghouta for at least ten days, the source added.

In the near future, the Syrian Arab Army is planning a large-scale military operation to split up the remaining militant areas into 4 sections; this is similar to their east Aleppo offensive, where they meticulously broke up the pocket in order to weaken the enemy’s resolve.

Ya funcionó en Alepo esta estrategia, ahora en esta zona será mucho mas fácil, habrá deserción de muchos mercenarios sobre todo los patrocinados por Turquía.

Actually, those mercenaries are mainly Saudi funded : have you seen the state of Turkish economy? It’s seriously diving, thanks to Erdolf : the main resource was tourism… Who would take holidays in Turkey now? All prefer to go to Malta or South Cyprus or Greece instead.
