Syrian Army Pounds Strongholds of Terrorists Heavily in Eastern Ghouta
Mon Oct 10, 2016 10:45:33

After hours of preliminary shelling and airstrikes pummeling terrorists defense lines around the Damascene city of Douma, the Syrian Army launched a mass-scale assault on the village of Rayhan, which lies no more than a kilometer away from Douma.

Violent clashes are ongoing inside the village and it remains unknown whether the Syrian Armed Forces will be able to consolidate their gains inside the village or retreat, AMN reports. 

Capturing the aforementioned village is an extremely difficult feat due to its proximity to Douma and the ample presence of tunnels all around the region.
