Syrian Army Makes Progress in Eastern Damascus
Damascus, Apr 21 (Prensa Latina) After intense air force and artillery bombing, Syrian army units have dismantled shelters and tunnels of terrorist groups in the Qabun region in eastern Damascus, according to military sources.
Syrian troops managed to eliminate at least a dozen extremists and to capture one of their leaders, without identifying at the moment the individual, the parties added.
In Qabun, belonging to the eastern district of Gutta, elements of the former Al Nusra Front are entrenched and launch sporadic attacks with mortar shells on capital districts.
Television footage showed scenes of intense artillery and air force bombardment against the positions of the extremists, who do not yet accept the possibility of negotiations.
