BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 P.M.) – Amid the Syrian military’s ongoing post-battle clearing operation of Damascus’ East Ghouta region, a huge complex of rebel tunnels, underground bases, troop housing areas and arms storage sites have been discovered underneath Jobar district that represent nothing less than a city.

The extensiveness of the underground complex serves to explain how insurgents in Jobar managed to keep mobile as well as stay resupplied and reinforced despite powerful Syrian Army offensives which threatened to isolate them in the district.

Recently, the Syrian Army discovered a 20-km long tunnel that connected militant positions and bases throughout the districts of Jobar, Ayn Tarma and Arbeen.

The Syrian Army officially took control of Jobar several days ago after rebel forces which had resisted government assaults for many years finally capitulated and surrendered their positions inside the district.

The SAA and allies should use the same underground network as it can be useful in defense from a future attack on Damascus by ISIS, other foreign jihadis, or other hostile powers
