Damascus, SANA – Representatives of the locals of Eastern Ghouta in Damascus Countryside announced on Sunday their willingness to have a local reconciliation in their area, expressing however the concern of some residents who are afraid to leave the area for fear their homes might be “occupied by strangers”.
During a meeting with the People Assembly’s National Reconciliation Committee on Sunday, the locals asked for guaranteeing an exit for the families from al-Ghouta and preparing urgent makeshift centers for them where they can be supplied with the necessary humanitarian and relief aid.
