Syrian Arab army on verge of liberating Ghouta

(MENAFN) As it intensified its thee-week operation on eastern Ghouta, the Syrian Arab army has reportedly seized control on the area near the Syrian capital.

The Syrian army made progress on March 10 into eastern Ghouta, the last major terrorist stronghold near the capital Damascus. That's according to a war monitor and Syrian state media, who said the army had managed to splinter the besieged enclave.

Syrian state television broadcast footage from inside Mesraba; the capture of that town and surrounding farmland brings important roads under Syrian army fire, effectively cutting the large terrorists-held towns of Harasta and Douma off from each other, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

A spokesman for Jaish al-Islam, one of the two main terrorists groups in Eastern Ghouta, said rebels had repelled the Mesraba attack.

Eastern Ghouta, which is home to some 400,000 people, has witnessed deadly violence over the past few days, with foreign-sponsored terrorists launching mortar attacks on the Syrian capital in the face of an imminent humiliating defeat.
