BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) seized the important East Ghouta town of Al-Shifouniyah, Sunday, after several days of fighting with Jaysh Al-Islam.

Led by their Tiger Forces, the Syrian Army was able to overtake the Jaysh Al-Islam militants protecting Al-Shifouniyah on Sunday, following the complete collapse of the latter’s defenses.

While pro-opposition activists denied losing the town, Syrian Army reporters released footage from Al-Shifouniyah in order to contrast the former’s claims.

Below is the first footage that was released from the town; it shows the Syrian Army at the Shifouniyah Municipal Building:

Where are the civilian people from the liberated areas? Except the marks of UNSC designated terrorists’ and their allies nothing can be seen. And AFAIK until now almost nobody was found so far.

p.s. Where do the UN numbers about dead civilians come from. The UN, US, UK France and Germany have nobody on the ground in East Ghouta, haven’t they?

White Helmets are the official source on the ground for UN. All in all: they won an Oscar, didn’t they?
Oh, yeah and Twitter (the renown news agency) is the #1 source for Reuters, AssociatedPress, Afp, etc
