Over 143,000 people have been evacauted from the Damascus subrub of Eastern Ghouta since the introduction of daily humanitarian pause in the region, the Russian military said in a statement on March 30.

“A total of more than 143,000 people have left Eastern Ghouta with the Russian Center’s support since the start of humanitarian pauses,” the statement says.

The military also pointed out that 28,495 people have been evacuated from the area of Douma.

Currently, Douma is controlled by Jaish al-Islam and remains the only militant stronghold in Eastern Ghouta. On March 30, the Russian military said that an evacuation agreement had been reached with militants and they will withdraw from the area “soon”. However, this statement was denounced by Jaish al-Islam representatives.

On March 29, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov noted that an evacaution operation in Eastern Ghotua had been accompanied by a pro-militant media campaign.

“Fake media reports were used as tools about hunger as a result of the siege, about indiscriminate bombings, which allegedly included the use of prohibited arms,” Lavrov said. “Exaggerated reports on allegations of Syrian state troops’ use of chemical weapons were once again in action, despite the absurdity of such allegations even from the military and tactical point of view.”

      You’ll have to destroy their sense of security first by actually point them as responsible. If every terrorist who indiscriminately bombing civilians in the west directed their acts to the family of those chickenhawk there’s should be more effective effect of their action.

    These Saudi-backed JAI maggots are living on borrowed (stolen) time. No amount of Wahabbi huffing and puffing, or ritualistic mass-scale goat fucking by the clerics of Naj will change the reality of Syrian government victory.
