Alexander Mercouris – East Ghouta: the last great battle of the Syrian war?
I suspect that something similar will happen in east Ghouta, though with the Syrian army much stronger than it was in Aleppo in 2016, and with the Jihadis in east Ghouta much weaker than were the Jihadis fighting in eastern Aleppo in 2016, I expect the process this time to be much shorter.
Already there are reports of the Syrian army making significant territorial gains as it closes in on the Jihadis in east Ghouta.
As for the Western powers, they have neither the means nor the will to prevent what is going to happen, which is the eventual liberation of east Ghouta from the Al-Qaeda led Jihadi terrorists who control it.
Though it may take a little time I expect the whole of east Ghouta before long to be under the control of the Syrian government.
At that point the Syrian government will be able to turn its full attention to the gathering crisis in Syria’s Kurdish areas far away in Syria’s north.
