Syrian army gains ground in intensified Ghouta assault

ICRC, SARC and United Nations teams in Eastern Ghouta delivered 2,400 food parcels that can sustain 12,000 people for one month, as well as 3,248 bags of flour, the ICRC said in a statement.

The Observatory reported heavy fighting on several fronts. The correspondent said the men were fighters who had come out of eastern Ghouta through the al-Wafideen crossing into government-held Syria.

The Syrian army has captured 52 percent of Eastern Ghouta in recent days, as part of an ongoing wide-scale offensive to dislodge the rebels from that key area on the eastern rim of Damascus.

But Wael Alwan, the Istanbul-based spokesman for Failaq al-Rahman, one of the main rebel groups in eastern Ghouta, denied that the territory had been cut in half.
