DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:40 P.M.) – On Thursday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uncovered a massive jihadist headquarters located beneath the Al-Qaboun neighborhood which was liberated earlier this week following an evacuation deal.

The bunker contained hundreds of shells, improvised explosives and manufacturing units intended for booby traps and hell cannons to be used against the SAA’s 4th Mechanized Division and 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard.

According to Al-Masdar News field correspondent Ibrahim Joudeh, the rebel HQ was the largest insurgent base to be captured by the SAA in the Syrian capital.

The facility was unearthed near Sheikh Jaber mosque and contained a floor which functioned as a field hospital while another floor stored ammunition and fuel.

The military source added that the bunker had tunnels connecting it to the northern, western and eastern sections of Al-Qaboun, thus giving full mobility to rebel forces despite daily bombardment by the Syrian Arab Air Force and SAA artillery units since February.
