Syrian Army says Western Attack Will Not Deter Its Battle

WHO demands access to Eastern Ghouta where over 500 exposed to 'toxic chemicals'

WHO demands access to Eastern Ghouta where over 500 exposed to 'toxic chemicals'

Douma is the largest town of the suburbs known as eastern Ghouta and its capture marks the biggest victory for President Bashar Assad's forces since the conflict began seven years ago.

Syrian TV showed police waving Syrian flags apparently on the edge of the town just east of Damascus, and said the "terrorist presence" in Douma will end "in a few hours".

The army said that the victory in Douma comes as the United States, Britain, and France have launched missile attacks on the Syrian military positions earlier on Saturday.

The Syrian government and allied forces launched a massive assault on 18 February to retake the enclave, which had been out of regime control since 2012.

The extreme bombardment killed some 1,700 civilians in line with the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor, and pulverised the realm, decreasing many neighbourhoods to rubble.

The allies have since signalled their resolve to return to diplomacy, launching a brand new bid on the United Nations to analyze chemical weapons assaults within the nation.

In the aftermath of this attack, the last rebel faction on the ground, the Islamist group Jaich al-Islam, had agreed to an evacuation agreement for its fighters sponsored by Moscow, similar to the initiatives that had already forced the groups Faylaq al-Rahman and Ahrar al-Cham to leave other areas of Ghouta.

Assad had made the reconquest of Jap Ghouta a strategic objective. The Syrian government has accused Washington of seeking to use it as a pretext for attacking.

The group has slammed the Western strikes as inadequate, as Assad maintains his grip on the war-ravaged nation.

"Punishing the instrument of the crime while keeping the criminal - a farce", wrote Mohammad Alloush, a key member of Jaish al-Islam.

On Tuesday, Rivaling US and Russian Federation drafted UNSC resolutions aimed at creating a new inquiry into chemical weapons attacks in Syria both failed to garner votes at the council.

The two-month assault on Eastern Ghouta sparked an worldwide outcry, with the head of the United Nations describing the conditions endured by civilians there as "hell on Earth".

Since the beginning of the humanitarian operation in Eastern Ghouta, the Russian reconciliation center played a decisive role in organizing evacuation of 67,680 militants and their families, according to the general.

The Syrian military stated a clear up operation was below manner within the battered enclave.

It added that the army is preparing eastern Ghouta for tens of thousands who were displaced over the past two months during a crushing government offensive to retake the area.

The civil war started in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-government protests.
