The Syrian Defense Ministry is conducting an awareness-raising campaign on returning civilian life among gunmen of the moderate and irreconcilable opposition in the capital city’s suburb of Eastern Ghouta, where a de-escalation zone was set up nearly a month ago, Syrian General Fauz Mustafa told reporters.
“We can see a teacher and children at school, and here are militants who teach their children how to handle weapons. We ask them what they want their children to be like, like this or like that,” the general explained commenting on the visual images prepared by the Syrian Defense Ministry circulated online.
According to Syrian military officials, during the hostilities in Eastern Ghouta, they distributed more than a million leaflets. They also have a loudspeaker mounted on an armored vehicle.
