On March 6, the White Helments, a notorious organization operating in areas controlled by al-Qaeda-linked militants, reported that “regime forces” had conducted a chlorine gas attack, which had allegedly injured 30 people in Eastern Ghouta.
It’s interesting to note that a new report about alleged chemical attack followed a Washington Post report that US President Donald Trump’s administration had discussed a possibility of a new “military action” against the Syrian government last week. The newspaper added that the “military action” will be a response to alleged chemical attacks conducted by the Assad government.

“The Russian Reconciliation Center guarantees the immunity of all rebel fighters who take the decision to leave Eastern Ghouta with personal weapons and together with their families,” the ministry said adding that vehicles would “be provided, and the entire route will be guarded.”
However, a spokesman for Faylaq al-Rahman publicly rejected the proposal. In turn, militants work to prevent locals from using the safe corridor to leave the besieged area. According to Major-General Yuri Yevtushenko, Head of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties, only 17 people have managed to leave Eastern Ghouta via the Al-Wafideen humanitarian corridor by March 6.
