E Ghouta Resident Dismisses Media Lies: 'Syrian Army Saved Us' (VIDEO)
He underscored that it was the Syrian Army who "saved us after five years of torment."
He said that he and his family are safe and sound, rejecting all other reports as "lies".
The interview comes as residents of Eastern Ghouta continue to flee the rebel-held area via humanitarian corridors organized by Moscow and Damascus. In four days, almost 50,000 people have reportedly fled, with 300,000 more still held by the terrorists.
The Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta has been under the control of armed rebels and the al-Nusra Front* terrorist group since 2012. The Syrian Army launched a military operation to drive the terrorists out of the area in February 2017, and has already liberated 70 percent of the territory.
