The Syrian Arab Army launched a new attack against the Syrian eastern districts of Damascus on Sunday morning, targeting positions of terrorists inside Al-Qaboun and Barzeh.
The Syrian army, led by the 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division and 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard, targeted the terrorists’ defenses, and advanced inside Barzeh.
Putting more pressure on the terrorists in west Damascus, the Syrian government has advanced against the terrorists in districts held by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Islam.
The attack comes a day after terrorists carried out an attack inside Syria, targeting pro-Syrian government evacuees who were leaving besieged Syrian towns.
Nearly 100 people were killed on Saturday in the car bomb explosion, sources said.
The blast struck buses of people who were leaving their towns and injured at least 55 others in Rashidin, a suburb of Aleppo in northwestern Syria, CNN reported.
The buses were evacuating citizens of Kefraya and al-Foua villages under a deal reached between the Syrian government and foreign-backed militant groups last month.
Over 30,000 residents were expected to be evacuated under the agreement, which began days ago with an exchange of prisoners between militants and government forces.
The Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) is also monitoring the implementation of the accord.
