EAST GHOUTA, Syria – Nine minutes of footage of the Syrian Army taking on terrorist forces in East Ghouta has been released by Russia’s ANNA News with English translations provided by R&U Videos.
The translated video was only released today and details the importance of the liberation of Beit Sawa, a crucial crossroads town in East Ghouta to the east of Damascus city center.
The Syrian Army for weeks has been liberating huge swathes of East Ghouta, resulting in only 50% of the pocket being held by terrorist organizations.
East Ghouta has been a thorn in the side of government-held Damascus as terrorist organizations would take advantage of its location and frequently shell civilians in the capital.
The pocket is also on the verge of being split into two enclaves. Such a move would inevitably mean the quick downfall of many other towns in East Ghouta as the Syrian Army continues its drive to liberate the entirety of the region.
