Over 105,000 civilians have fled Syria’s Ghouta: state media

DAMASCUS (AFP) – More than 105,000 civilians have escaped the shrinking rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta near Syria’s capital that has been under regime attack for the past month, state news agency SANA said Saturday.

SANA, citing a military source, said that “more than 105,000 civilians… exited Eastern Ghouta so far” but did not give additional details.

State television gave the same figure for those leaving Eastern Ghouta, whose population has been estimated at 400,000, and said they had exited through “humanitarian corridors” opened by Syrian troops.
