The regime continues to loot Harasta and arrests carried out against young men despite the “guarantees” of the popular committees dissident from Al-Rahman Corps

The Eastern Ghouta of Damascus is witnessing continuation of looting, to the properties of citizens and displaced people, and to the continents of the public utilities and headquarters which have been evacuated or controlled, and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights learned that the looting carried out by members of the gunmen loyal to the regime forces as well as members of the regime forces, is still continuing in Harasta city, where the stolen things are being transported to the regime forces’ controlled areas in the outskirts of the capital of Damascus, while the areas which the regime forces have advanced into in the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus, and which about 37 thousand citizens are still stayed in, are witnessing arrests carried out against young men located in these areas, where the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights learned that the regime forces arrested 18 young men at least in Kafr Batna and Saqba town, and they were taken to detention centers in the area, and these arrests come despite all the guarantees given by Bassam Dafda’, who was a field commander in Al-Rahman Corps, and joined the regime forces after they advanced into the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus, turning to popular committees operating in the areas controlled by Al-Rahman Corps.

And the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights published on the 19th of March 2018, that groups of Al-Rahman Corps, turned into popular committees operating with the regime forces, in the areas used to be controlled by Al-Rahman Corps and then the regime forces advanced into, in the south-western enclave of the Eastern Ghouta, and clashes against the fighters of Al-Rahman Corps in the contact areas between these committees and the members of the latter.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has monitored that members of the militiamen loyal to the regime forces and other members of the regime forces looted the properties of citizens in areas, recently controlled by the regime forces since the 25th of February 2018, and sources stressed that the looting of properties of citizens took place in houses, shops, cars and vehicles belong to the citizens, in addition to the looting of properties and military premises of areas controlled by the regime forces and militiamen allied to them under the command of Russian officers and advisers, which reached more than 90.5% of the factions’ controlled areas in the Eastern Ghouta, in addition to the death and injury of thousands, where the Syrian observatory published hours ago that it rose to 1644, the number of the Syrian civilians whose death was documented by the Syrian Observatory in the Eastern Ghouta, including 344 children and 213 women, who have been killed since the 18th of February 2018, by the aerial, rocket and artillery shelling on the cities and towns of Douma, Harasta, Arbin, Zamalka, Hamouriyah, Jesrin, Kafr Batna, Hazza, Ash’ari, Nashabiyah, Aftries, Otaya, Al-Shifonyyah, Al-Marj area, Mesraba, Madyara, Beit Sawa, and other areas in the besieged Ghouta of Damascus, resulted in the injury of more than 5420 citizens including hundreds of children and citizen women with varying severity, some of them have permanent disabilities, while the bodies of tens of citizens are still under the rubble of destruction caused by the aerial, rocket and artillery shelling by the regime forces on the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus, and the total death toll documented by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, includes 1112 casualties including 203 children and 130 women who were killed and documented by the SOHR after the resolution of the UNSC, which failed again to stop the killing of the people of the Eastern Ghouta, and the shelling resulted in the fall of hundreds of wounded, where the number of casualties may increase because of the presence of serious injuries.
