Syrian Army Uncovers Field Hospitals, Tunnel Networks in Ghouta

While combing the villages and towns of the Eastern Ghouta, Syrian Arab Army units on Monday found field hospitals, medical equipment and tunnel networks left behind by terrorists.

SANA’s correspondent in the Eastern Ghouta said that army units in Arbin uncovered two underground field hospitals connected by a tunnel extending for more than 400 meters.

The two hospitals contained stolen medical equipment and large quantities of medicine which the terrorists had stolen from the aid convoys that were sent to the Eastern Ghouta under the supervision of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent.

Army units also discovered a huge tunnel in Ayn Terma extending for a number of kilometers and dividing into two branches, the first connecting Ayn Terma with Zamalka in the north, while the other connects the town with Jobar, the correspondent said, adding that terrorist groups affiliated to Jabhat al-Nusra and Faylaq al-Rahman had been using this huge tunnel to sneak toward military posts in Harasta.

Earlier, the correspondent said that the army uncovered a network of tunnels that included paths for cars, extending for around 3 kilometers and connecting Jobar, Arbin, Ayn Terma and Zamalka.
