AlMasdarNews reports: The Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade and Hezbollah captured 11 villages from the extremist rebels of Faylaq Al-Rahman and Jaysh Al-Fustat on Thursday, marking their largest year-to-date advance in the East Ghouta region of rural Damascus.
While combing through the captured villages, soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army’s Engineering Corps unearthed a large network of tunnels that stretched from the villages of Sheba’a to Deir Al-‘Assafir.
These tunnels were heavily stocked with assault rifles, ammunition, mortar shells, missiles, maps, Saudi produced food, first aid kits, telecommunication devices, entertainment equipment, and educational pamphlets.
The extremist rebels have rely on these tunnels in the East Ghouta to evade the Syrian Arab Army’s snipers and the Syrian Arab Air Force’s (SAAF) powerful airstrikes.
