Syria’s flags were seen hoisted inside a major militant-held town in Eastern Ghouta region as army troops are increasingly expanding control in the terrorist bastion.
Local sources said that Syria’s flag has been hoisted by people in the terrorist-heled settlements of Sabqa and Hamouriyeh in Eastern Ghouta.
The sources said that the people, whose region has been under several years of terrorists’ occupation, are preparing to welcome the Syrian Army in their villages, settlements and towns.
Civilians in Mesraba settlement have protested massively against terrorists, the sources said, adding that the Damascus government has started negotiating with local leaders to hand over their regions to the army troops.
On Tuesday, the Syrian Army troops launched a heavy attack on terrorists’ positions before the start of the daily ceasefire and imposed control over a main part of a key settlement in Eastern Ghouta.
The army units kicked off a fresh wave of attacks on terrorists in early Tuesday and managed to advance against the militants in the depth of al-Reihan settlement, driving the terrorists out of a large part of the settlement.
A military analyst said that if the army men free al-Reihan, they will open their path to the Eastern direction of the key town Douma after years of terrorists’ occupation.
