The Saudi-backed “Syria’s Tomorrow Movement “leader Ahmed al-Jarba held Faylaq al-Rahman responsibility for the bloodshed in Eastern Ghouta due to its rejection of the Russian de-escalation agreement during a press conference in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

“We hold Faylaq al-Rahman who did not sign Eastern Ghouta Agreement responsibility for the bloodshed there” Al-Jarba said, adding: ” Faylaq al-Rahman did not sign Ghouta agreement, so the clashes continue in some places.”

He stressed that “the blood of the Syrian people is more valuable than recording a point here or there.” Ahmed al-Jarba’s statement reflects the great differences between all the opposition sides in Eastern Ghouta.

          There is no cease fire with HTS only certain declared “rebel” groups!
          Yes there is a cease fire in eastern Damascus but not in the Jobar area as the group their is allied with HTS and not included in the ceasefire deal!

        Why are you even commenting when you know full well these 2 groups were excluded from any ceasefire agreement since they have refused from day one. HTS is a known Islamic terrorist front as Faylaq al Rahman is closely related to them both are Terrorists fronts of Al Qaeda. They have been warned in regards to what is necessary to secure this area for humanitarian aid which requires this road to be secured in the region.

    Looks like the tank took that hit in the front or the turret. To me it looked like the crew had a good chance to survive that hit- any opinions?
