DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division unearthed a massive tunnel outside the jihadist stronghold of Khan Al-Sheih on Tuesday after conducting a cleansing operation in the Al-Marran area.
According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army discovered a 700 meter long tunnel that stretched from Al-Marran Farms to the east district of Khan Al-Sheih.
The field correspondent added that the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) used this massive tunnel to resupply their fighters with weapons and ammunition near Khan Al-Sheih in the West Ghouta.
The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) released footage of this tunnel and a statement from one of the Syrian Army officers present at the scene:
The Syrian Arab Army has the town of Khan Al-Sheih completely surrounded, leaving the jihadist rebels with their backs against the wall at this strategic town in the West Ghouta.
