This looting operation comes about 2 weeks after a raid by the regime police for the looting markets in the areas which were controlled by the regime forces in the suburbs of the capital, where many families of members and officers of the regime forces and militiamen loyal to them reside, where the Syrian Observatory published on the 27th of May 2018 that Dahiyat al-Assad which is located within the eastern suburbs of the capital Damascus, opposite to Harasta city, witnessed raids carried out by the regime police, on markets in the area for selling household items and furniture, and in the details monitored by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights; the police of the regime raided the market of looted things in Dahiyat al-Assad which is inhabited by many families of the members of the regime forces and gunmen loyal to them, where they confiscated household items, furniture and equipment which had been looted by gunmen loyal to the regime and members of the regime forces from Harasta city, the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus and other areas in the outskirts and vicinity of the capital Damascus, after the regime forces and their allies imposed their control over them, which provoked mockery of citizens who said that the police loot what had been looted as if a thief robs another thief, in an attempt by the regime forces to absorb the resentment of the citizens and their reaction against the looting processes of the houses and property in the south of the capital Damascus, the Eastern Ghouta and other areas in the vicinity of the capital.
