Severe clashes erupted today as the government forces continue to advance deep in the Eastern Ghouta region, seizing new territories from the Saudi backed Jaish al-Islam.
The Syrian Armed Forces launched a fresh attack on Mayda’ani, ousting Islamist fighters from 9 points inside the town.
The progress, however, was not completely secure. Two Army tanks were substantially damaged by rebels’ anti-tank missiles during the advance.
Leaked documents were recently released suggesting that several meetings have been held between rebels of Douma and government representatives to discuss a potential evacuation agreement along the lines of ones recently implemented in rural Damascus.
