Debris in Beit-Sahm, the town near Damascus destroyed by terrorists, are to be cleared in 20 days by construction brigades mobilized by the Syrian government, Interfax-ABN reports on June 16.
An engineer of the construction brigade Samir Shamani said to journalists:
“It seems like a small city, but there is a lot of work ahead. During 7 years spent here, the militants built so many underground tunnels and barricades that it can’t be dismantled at once. I think that the streets of Beit Sahm will be cleared in 20 days”.
One brigade will start its work in the morning. Other brigades are operating in the Eastern Ghouta and neighbouring Yalda and Babilla. The arrival of electricians and plumbers is expected soon. The population of Beit-Sahm helps the workers by clearing their own yards.
The destruction in Beit-Sahm, Yalda, and Babilla resulted from the fights against terrorists. In April 2015, ISIL (organisation banned in Russia) militants captured the major part of the Palestinian Yarmouk Camp in the south of Damascus and neighbouring Al-Hajar al-Aswad. The radical groups of Al-Nusra Front (organisation banned in Russia) retreated from the camp and fortified in the villages of Babilla, Beit-Sahm, and Yalda. Now all these villages situated in the suburb of the Syrian capital are liberated.
The transition to peaceful life became possible thanks to the Syrian Arabic Republic’s army, which had the support of the Russian forces in combating the international terrorists. It allowed to liberate the major part of the Syrian territory. On May 31, the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad stated his readiness to liberate all of the country’s territory.
