Only one terrorist stronghold to go and Ghouta is cleared in a near replay of Aleppo
"It will leave only one remaining rebel pocket in eastern Ghouta - the city of Douma - and put Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on the brink of his biggest victory over the insurgents since driving them from Aleppo in December 2016.Covered the exit from Harasata yesterday:
Insurgents in one of those pockets - the town of Harasta - began withdrawing in a convoy of buses for opposition territory in northwestern Syria on Thursday. More buses left on Friday carrying fighters and their family members"
"Meanwhile, rebels in a second pocket around the towns of Arbin, Jobar, Zamalka and Ein Terma said they had also agreed to leave.
Assad and his allies say their offensive in eastern Ghouta is necessary to end the rule of Islamist militants over the area’s people, and to stop them shelling government areas"
Very good news for Syria's war for her independence.
