A colossal military convoy was seen, today morning, passing the Damascus highway to the rebel-held town of Darayya as the Syrian Army prepares for a wide-scale offensive against the southwestern suburbs.
A footage was filmed by local activists showing tens of army camouflaged vehicles, manned and equipped with medium-caliber machine guns and short-range rockets making their way to battleground Darayya.
Clashes between government troops and local insurgents have renewed recently after months of the shaky Russia-US brokered ceasefire has been implemented. The reasons behind such clashes are still unknown.
Daraya, located nearly 10 km to the southwest of the capital Damascus, has been an early hotspot of anti-government protests and subsequent bloody battles with the Syrian Army.
The rebels controlling Darayya have agreed on the February ceasefire brokered by Russia and the United States. Ever since, guns have been almost silenced; clearing the way for aid convoys to enter the besieged town.
