In a relevant development on Saturday the Syrian military helicopters threw thousands of leaflets over the villages and towns in Eastern Ghouta to inform civilians willing to leave the area about the safe corridor designated for evacuating civilians through al-Wafideen Camp.
A military source said that the leaflets included the steps that the people should adopt to reach the corridor safely so that they could be transported to a temporary housing center in al-Dweer in Damascus Countryside.
The source added that the helicopters are throwing leaflets on daily basis over Ghouta villages and towns to make sure they reach all civilians.
