The Syrian army continues to advance in the suburbs of Damascus, which for the last few years, has been controlled by Jihadi’s. Almost every day there is fierce fighting. Jihadi’s firing points utilise almost all the buildings of the villages. In addition, the buildings are connected to each other with secret underground passages that were dug by the Jihadi’s , which enable them to rapidly retreat from the Syrian military if necessary.
