Thursday, 12 April 2018, morning: Eastern Ghouta has been completely
liberated of jihadists.

The final liberation of the whole of Eastern Ghouta includes the city of
Duma. This was under the control of jihadists of Yesh al-Islam (the Islamic
Army) and was where the so-called White Helmets operate - a group that
purports to defend civilians and which is funded by the UK.

In total, 165 000 persons – civilians and armed jihadists - have been
evacuated, pursuant to agreements concluded by the Syrian Ministry for
Reconciliation under the protection of the Russian Centre.
