Syria: SAA recovers strategic zones in Eastern Ghouta

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) breached Jaish al-Islam's lines of defence in Hawsh al-Dawahira town in eastern Ghouta on Wednesday, seizing large areas of the opposition-held territory. Footage filmed after 14:00 local time (12:00 GMT) on Wednesday afternoon shows the SAA taking control over several strategic locations including Hawsh al-Dawahira and the Shifuniya crossroad, as well as several farms... Еще from the area. On Saturday, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) unanimously voted for a nationwide 30-day ceasefire. The resolution does not extend to the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL), Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda, and other groups the UNSC deems as «terrorist groups.» Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday that a ceasefire in Syria does not apply to the fight against terrorism. «Both in Eastern Ghouta and in Idlib there are militant groups which are portrayed by the West as moderate [Ahrar al sham and Jaish al Islam] but that are cooperating with a terrorist group — al Nusra — designated by the UNSC.»
