DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:00 P.M.) – A Syrian art group is making artistic sculptures inside tunnels used by rebel fighters in Jobar district a few months after the entire capital is fully secured.
The sculptures were made to honor the hostages who forcibly dug the tunnels.
Rebel groups in Eastern Ghouta used to force their captives, both civilians and military, to dug tunnels to be used in battles against the Syrian Army. Many of the hostages died in the process.
On March, Faylaq al-Rahman rebel group agreed to be evacuated to the country’s north following a full-scale offensive by the Syrian Army on rebel groups across East Ghouta region.
