DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:30 A.M.) – The town elders inside the Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) stronghold of Douma have reportedly reached out to the Syrian government and Russian military this week in to end the hostilities between them.
According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus, a joint Syrian and Russian military delegation arrived in Douma this week to discuss terms of reconciliation.
Previously, the militants inside Douma rejected the Syrian Army’s offer to reconcile; however, due to their recent losses in the East Ghouta, the rebels have agreed to entertain the idea.
As a sign of good faith, the Syrian government sent humanitarian aid to the people of Douma this week, while also halting their military operations in the East Ghouta.
The next few days will be crucial for all parties in this war, as the Syrian military looks to conclude their operations near the strategic town of Douma.
