ElDorar AlShamia:

On Sunday ,the eastern Ghouta’s events get a new chapter having new heroes which are the popular events that are driving demonstrations in the cities of Ghouta several days ago, rising its tone and give the factions 24 hours to respond to the demands otherwise they will resort to escalate the movement even more.

ElDorar’s correspondent , who attended  demonstration for popular events, they identified their demands to return back of stolen rights between all factions from weapons and military equipment, and to form a joint operations room, to supply frontlines with qualitative arms, reopen all frontlines and remove factions’ barriers of cities and towns.

Our correspondent reported that the leaders of these events plan to send a unified book for each factions alike includes demands, and in case they would not get any response, they will have multiple options, including an escalation of mobility and continuity of pressure, and to defame the factions which would give negative responses or do not respond at all.

The bloody events of the Eastern Ghouta

The Eastern Ghouta woke up by nearly six months of bloody battles included “Faylaq al-Rahman” and Jabhat al-Nusra (Jabhat Fateh al-Shm currently), and “Fajer alUmmah” on the one hand, VS. Jaysh al-Islam on the other hand, after Faylaq al-Sham accused Jaysh al-Islam of trying to assassinate the previous judge of the Eastern Ghouta " Suleiman al-Tofour" and presented certificates to some of the people confirmed that they receive orders from the security system of Jaysh al-Islam, but the latter questioned the presented evidence and demanded to form a commission of inquiry accusing the committee that heard the statements of witnesses being biased and support Faylaq al-Sham, so  the fighting continued for more than eight days killed more than 270 people from both sides in addition to the wounded, and ended with backing down of Jaysh al-Islam on the eastern sector of Ghouta and some central sector areas , withdrawing from the southern fronts sector due to its inability to bring in supplies, according to the issued official statements at that time, while the three factions-alliance of “al-Fustat” in Jobar and the western sector.


Both parties agreed to have a commission of arbitration headed by Engineer Akram Toemeh, and identified six items’ resolution and the the most important one is to remove barriers to withdraw from the eastern Ghouta, and the formation of a joint operations room and the immediate release of the detainees.

It succeeded the Commission's efforts to release the majority of the detainees, but it stalled when efforts to form a joint operations room in spite of the signing parties to it, as the Commission failed to reach a solution leading to the release of mutual arms, where JFS adheres to that Jaysh al-Islam needs to release  a number of elements says they are affiliated to it, while Jaysh al-Islam confirms that the elements are its, but they were working for Fatah al-Sham within Jaysh al-Islam ranks, and calls for the Jaysh to recycling mechanisms in which local shells were produced and used in the battles, while the other party that clings restored everything.

Current phase:

A few days after fighting erupted between the rebellion factions ,the entire southern sector fell, which is considered the food basket for the region, after that each of “Hosh al-Fara, Hosh Nasri, Rahbat alEsharah and alBaharya” towns fell too , bringing the number of towns those controlled by the al-Assad's forces for more than 15 towns.

ElDorar’s correspondent quoted military sources in the eastern Ghouta that one prisoner from al-Assad regime confessed  that the regime is planning to isolate Douma  city the largest city of Ghouta from the rest of the sectors and impose a blockade on.

Currently, demonstrations that roam the Ghouta’s cities and towns demand that the rest of the factions to launch fighting on the frontlines of Jobar , Arbin and the southern sector in order to distract the regime, not allowing to intensify pressure on the eastern sector, specifically the town of “Rihan” which is witnessing attack and retreat battles on a daily basis.

However, the official spokesman of Faylaq al-Rahman, Wael Alwan, confirmed for ElDorar news network that their frontlines seen daily clashes with the al-Assad's forces so they do as possible as they can, but the military junta of Rif Dimashq province , which includes well-experienced officers confirms that only the establishment of a joint operations room is solution; because the factions could not planned and coordinated each faction alone.

Today , popular events and civilian residents intervene trying to get a kind of solution in an attempt compel the parties to come together around a common point, after all the efforts, including regional states have failed, so would such activities succeed in avoiding the Ghouta a probable disaster to fall or Sharei symbols and the political parties those launch  mutual  accusations and mistrust argues on social media on a daily basis have got a different opinion?
