DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4: 10 P.M.) – The Syrian Army has uncovered the biggest tunnel used by Jaysh al-Islam rebel group in its stronghold of Douma after the city had completely fallen to the government troops.
The tunnel, located under the National Hospital with several branches, is supported by metal pillars and equipped with electricity, rooms, parking lots and all kinds of supplies.
The 15-meters deep tunnel took nearly 2 years to be completed, said one of Douma residents who accompanied the camera crew.
Huge quantities of weapons, underground artillery and workshops were discovered in the network of tunnels.
Last Saturday, the Syrian Army officially declared the city of Douma fully liberated after the last batch of militants left to Syria’s north as per an evacuation deal with the Syrian government.
