On April 7, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces launched their ground assault on the last stronghold of Jaysh al-Islam in the Damascus subrub of Eastern Ghouta – the Duma district. According to the Hezbollah media wing, the SAA and its allies captured most of the farms south and west of Duma.

Syrian pro-government sources reported that warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) had destroyed more than 300 positions of Jaysh al-Islam, including the main headquarter, communication networks and ammo depots, in Duma district over the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, Jaysh al-Islam continued shelling the government-held districts of Damascus. Five civilians were killed and more than thirty others were injured in Jaysh al-Islam shelling, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency.

While the SAA is stepping up its military operation in Duma district, negotiations between Russia and officials of Jaysh al-Islam are still ongoing. However, Syrian pro-government activists believe that Jaysh al-Islam is not willing to accept a peaceful solution and that its leadership is negotiating only to buy more time.

      Why is PUTIN treating these terrorists as ‘royalty’? Because they are the holy of the holys- the most special of all Saudi Arabia’s wahhabi goons- and as we all know, Putin serves the rulers of KSA.

      Assad wants them dead. The people of Syria want them dead. But Putin, where Humanly possible, wants what Saudi Arabia wants.

      Today, RT, in an article complaining about new Trump imposed sanctions agaisnt Russia, BOASTS about Putin’s weapon sales to Saudi Arabia and the wahhabi nation allies of KSA in the region. RT knows you dumb-dumbs are too thick to ever notice which nations get Russian weapons and which do NOT!

        French unit on patrol in Vietnam in 1954, during the final year of the First Indochina War, is ambushed by Viet Minh forces, probably the Battle of Mang Yang Pass. Viet Minh commander Nguyen Huu An orders his soldiers to “kill all they send, and they will stop coming”.[wiki]
