For unknown reasons (likely to be due to the liberation of Jdedet Artouz), the regime’s forces have severely escalated their campaign against Jdedet Artouz town in the western suburbs of Damascus for the past 4 days up until now. According to an eye-witness from Al Mazzeh Coordination, massive reinforcements, which included 17 trucks (9 of them driving tanks and 8 of them driving BMB vehicles), ambulance cars, and buses carrying Shabiha (thugs) forces headed to Sehnaya barrier located right beside the entrance of Jdedet Artouz. Cars coming from Damascus were forced to go back to where they came from and no one was allowed into or out of the area.

The regime’s forces specially concentrated their escalation against Al Muwali district. According to eye-witnesses too, the regime’s forces and Shabiha (thugs) stormed several houses and killed its civilians in horrific means, including slaughter, gunfire, and burning alive. Up until now, 68 martyrs have been documented, killed during the past 4 days.

Free Syrian Army still is stationed in many of the districts of Jdedet Artouz, fighting back the regime’s forces’ desperate attempts to take control over the whole town. The area is totally surrounded and civilians are being banned from fleeing the area. Clashes between the Free Syrian Army and the regime’s forces are still ongoing up until now. 

Do note that not much videos have yet been received to document the martyrs or the indiscriminate bombardment due to the lack of good communication and because the area the martyrs are in is under the regime’s forces’ control, making it nearly impossible for activists to go inside and cover the harrowing atrocities being carried out by the regime’s forces in utter silence.
