SYRIAN ARMY STARTS SHELLING REBEL POSITIONS EAST OF DAMASCUS

The Syrian army started shelling rebel positions in Damascus’ Eastern Ghouta countryside, on Sunday, the pro-government al-Ekhbariah TV reported.

Loud sounds of explosions were heard in the Syrian capital, as rebel positions came under attack in Eastern Ghouta, which has returned under the spotlight with a military showdown recently.

The opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, Syrian forces fired tens of missiles on Eastern Ghouta, as part of the preparation for a large-scale offensive on that key rebel-held area.

Also, pro-government activists said, the Syrian army is paving the way for the offensive with intense shelling, targeting rebel positions, in the Bait Sawa, Mesraba, and Nashabiyeh areas in Eastern Ghouta.

The Syrian air strikes have also targeted tunnels and trenches, built by the rebels in south-east Douma city.

But a well-informed source in eastern Damascus said, the ground battle for Eastern Ghouta had not started yet.

Earlier in the day, the pro-government al-Watan newspaper reported that, marathon negotiations were underway, to reach a settlement with the rebels in Eastern Ghouta, amid Syrian military buildup on the outskirts of that area, in case of the talks fail.

The settlement of the tense situation in Eastern Ghouta was mediated by the Russians, said the paper, adding that, the negotiations were called for by the rebels, who are under the Syrian military’s pressure.
