Syrian Gov’t Forces Discover Tunnel Network After Eastern Ghouta Liberation

The Syrian government army discovers a vast tunnel network in Eastern Ghouta after liberating the area from rebel forces.
The tunnels were used by anti-government Islamic rebels as shelter from Russian airstrikes, and to deliver supplies and reinforcements.
Some tunnels are wide enough for cars and several-miles long, connecting various districts of Eastern Ghouta.
The heavily-fortified tunnel network also features underground hospitals, warehouses, and ammunition depots.

Syrian military officials say the tunnels had played a crucial role in rebel resistance in Eastern Ghouta.
The tunnels are set to be destroyed by Syrian Army engineers as government forces are preparing for an offensive against the town of Douma — the last rebel stronghold in the vicinity of Damascus.
