BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 P.M.) – The Islamist rebels in the East Ghouta region have released eight Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers as part of the deal they made with the government last week.

According to a military report, the eight Syrian Army soldiers had previously been captured by the militants during the government offensives in 2014 and 2016.

These eight soldiers are believed to be the last military personnel that were imprisoned by Faylaq Al-Rahman in the East Ghouta.

The video below was taken by the SANA yesterday; it shows the soldiers after their release:

The only prisoners that the jihadi scumbag gangs keep alive are the sunni muslim soldiers that fight for the legitimate Syrian government. The jihadi gangs try to recruit them into their ranks at first and all. The shia, alewite, christian and all the rest get executed by these jihadi criminals. There day will come !
