Syrian army declares capturing last rebel bastion in Eastern Ghouta

President Donald Trump

To date, many weapons and ammunition factories and weapons depots have been found, along with many food depots, which have been monopolized by terrorists who starved and extorted locals, in addition to hospitals, medicine caches, and a large number of tunnels, the General Command said.

The Syrian military has declared that each one anti-regime forces have left Jap Ghouta, after a blistering two month offensive on the insurgent enclave on the outskirts of the capital.

Saturday's retaliatory strikes by the United States, Britain and France targeted 3 facilities they say were related to chemical weapons.

The Syrian government strongly denied the allegation, calling for the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to send a fact-finding mission for investigations.

But the Syrian government also claims damage from the attack was limited, as its air defense shot down incoming missiles.

"All terrorists have left Douma, the last of their holdouts in Eastern Ghouta", state news agency SANA yesterday quoted an army spokesman as saying, using the regime's usual term for rebels.

Firstly of the yr Jap Ghouta was a sprawling semi-rural space simply east of Damascus, residence to almost 400,000 inhabitants, which had already endured a number of years below a authorities siege that slashed entry to meals, drugs and different items. The government's capture of Douma, the last town held by the rebels in eastern Ghouta, marks a major victory for Assad.

A team of experts from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is now in Damascus and expected to investigate the site of the alleged chemical attack.

Douma and the sprawling eastern Ghouta region near the capital, Damascus, had been under rebel control since 2012 and was a thorn in the side of President Bashar Assad's government for years.

Hundreds of Syrians demonstrated in a landmark square of the Syrian capital, waving victory signs and honking their auto horns in a show of defiance.

The fast-moving events that have transpired in the days since suggest a certain degree of coordination and prior choreographing between the USA and its allies, with Russian Federation even going as far as saying that what happened in Douma is nothing more than a provocation meant to invent the pretext for launching conventional military strikes against Syria, something that Moscow ominously warned could lead to "grave repercussions".

In Damascus, the president's seat of power, hundreds of residents gathered in Omayyad Square, many waving Syrian, Russian and Iranian flags.
