The Syrian Army has specified a safe corridor for evacuating civilians from terrorist-held regions in Eastern Ghouta as the pro-government forces are preparing for an imminent operation, army officers declared on Saturday.
The source said that the army has called on civilians in terrorist-held regions in Eastern Ghouta to use a newly-set up safe corridor to move towards regions that are under the government forces’ control.
The army’s helicopters dropped thousands of leaflets over residential areas in Eastern Ghouta and urged civilians to leave the terrorist-held regions.
The army has illustrated a map of rapid access to the safe corridor and necessary instructions, calling on civilians to use the safe corridor in al-Wafedin camp to reach government-controlled regions.
In the meantime, the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria announced that the terrorists in Eastern Damascus are preventing people from leaving the region.
The Russian center said on Friday that militants in Eastern Ghouta continue to hinder civilians’ evacuation from the controlled areas.
“Situation in Eastern Ghouta has been exacerbated. Illegal armed formations has been denying citizens the right to freely exit the controlled areas. Most of the civilians badly need urgent medical aid,” the center’s statement read.
Eastern Ghouta is one of Syrian de-escalation zones, established during the Astana talks, with Russia, Iran and Turkey serving as guarantors of the agreements.
