Seven years of violence came to an end in Damascus last week after the city’s suburbs were fully liberated from foreign-backed terrorists. For the first time since 2011, local people in these areas can lead normal lives without fearing mortars and snipers. Press TV’s Zahraa al-Derzi has visited one of these newly-liberated towns and sent us this report.
