The source said that the Syrian Army troops’ anti-terrorism operation in Eastern Damascus is intensifying while the ground has been prepared for those militants willing to join the nationwide reconciliation process and receive government amnesty in lieu of stopping armed clashes.
The military expert added that the Syrian army has been capable of seizing two long tunnels of Al-Nusra connecting al-Qaboun region to its surrounding areas and farther regions in Eastern Ghouta.
He further said there are a number of tunnels in al-Qaboun region that are used by the Al-Nusra, adding that the army soldiers have advanced deep into the Northwestern farms of al-Qaboun.
“Considering the siege of the terrorists in al-Qaboun by the army, it is expected that we witness a full collapse of the Al-Nusra Front in the next days,” the military expert underscored.
Well-placed military sources said on Tuesday that the Syrian Army troops was resolved to accomplish stretching a security ring around the capital, Damascus, by forcing terrorists out of Eastern Ghouta.
The sources said that the army was planning to take back the town of al-Qaboun to cut it off from the Barzeh region to reinvigorate security of Damascus city and its outskirts.
The source underlined that the army’s control over al-Qaboun region blocked terrorists’ movements between al-Qaboun and Barzeh, tightening noose on terrorists in Jobar districts in the Eastern outskirts of Damascus.
He further added that security was restored to several regions adjacent to al-Qaboun region, including al-Abbaseen and al-Tejarah that were previously being targeted by terrorists repeatedly.
The source went on to say that al-Qaboun was full of tunnel networks that connected the region to Jobar, Harasta, and Barzeh, giving terrorists a merit for transferring forces and equipment.
Yet he underlined that the army was experienced enough to foil terrorists’ plans in the fight against the terrorists using these tunnels.
