BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) currently controls 87 percent of the East Ghouta region after more than three weeks of fighting, Hezbollah’s Military Media channel reported on Wednesday.

The remaining territory that makes up the 13 percent of the militant-held pocket is located inside the East Ghouta town of Douma.

Douma is a Jaysh Al-Islam stronghold that has been out of the government’s control since the advent of the Syrian war.

The Syrian Army and Russian military are currently awaiting Jaysh Al-Islam’s response to the deal they offered the militant group this past weekend.

Jaysh Al-Islam’s window to accept this deal has reached its end; however, they have yet to respond.

The Syrian Army has already threatened to kickoff their operation, today, if Jaysh Al-Islam refuses to give an answer.
