BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – For the first time in years, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is at the outskirts of two important East Ghouta towns that are currently under the control of the Islamist rebels.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Army has reportedly reached the towns of Beit Sawa and Mesraba, which have long been strongholds of the Islamist rebels.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Army is expected to launch a big attack on these two towns in the coming hours, as they mount more pressure on the remaining Islamist rebels in the area.

Rumors have also begun to surface that residents of these two towns have demanded the militants leave Beit Sawa and Mesraba in order to avoid a conflict with the Syrian Army.

However, the likelihood of the militants surrendering these two towns without a fight is very slim, given the fact that they are located near the Jaysh Al-Islam stronghold of Douma.

The rats are leaving the sinking ship. The people were pro terrorist when the terrorists were strong – their religious leader told them to be pro terrorist.

And the imams provided free handouts donated from the Gulf and US instigators of the war. Campaign goodies to win their hearts for the terrorists.

Now the people fear for their houses. The Gulf sheikdoms and the US send nothing any more. And the terrorists and their imams do not care and want these houses destroyed. They want to fight for the destruction of the houses to alienate the owners from the state.

To alienate homeowners from the State is impossible. Rule of Law quickly prevails over the grotesque version of Sha’ria imposed by Jihadists.
Rater, Militants’ strategy is slowing SAA down and bleeding them as much as possible. They only want SAA to attack in a swamp of human shields and trenches/tunnels.

Yes. But serves the same purpose. Alienate.
