Syrian rebels in Ghouta refuse Russian safe passage offer


Several Syrian opposition fighters in Ghouta announced on Tuesday their refusal to leave the city amid intensive attack by the Syrian regime, backed by Russia and Iran. 

In a statement, the opposition said that the Russian attack against the city is a 'forced displacement'.

On Tuesday, the Russian military offered Syrian rebels a safe passage out of Eastern Ghouta, setting out a proposal to let the opposition surrender its last major stronghold near Damascus.
