Syrian Army raises flag over rebel stronghold in the West Ghouta
The Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces raised the Syrian Arab Republic’s flag over the municipal building inside the rebel stronghold of Mu’adhimiyah Al-Sham on Sunday after a reconciliation agreement was put in place by local committees. According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus, the local rebel groups conceded the municipal building to the government forces; this was followed by the latter removing all the barricades around the city.
Ajnad Al-Sham agreed to destroy all of their tunnels inside of Al-Mu’adhimiyah as long as the government starts providing aid to the rebel areas inside the city. The rebel group also asked the government to treat all of their sick and wounded residents in a Damascene hospital. In addition to this, the rebel group also asked the Syrian government to allow residents to complete their exams in Damascus. The government has agreed to these terms.
