"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Key rebel supply route cutoff by the Syrian Army in Greater Damascus- Al-Masdar News

The Syrian Arab Army’s 102nd Brigade of the Republican Guard – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) – cutoff a key rebel supply route on Monday that links the towns of Tal Kurdi and Tal Sawwan in the East Ghouta (collection of farms in rural Damascus).

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus City, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to capture the storage area between Tal Kurdi and Tal-Sawwan after a violent battle with the extremist rebels of Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam) and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group). 

This is an important area because the rebel supply route begins at the nearby town of Mayda’; if lost, they would be completely besieged in the East Ghouta and forced to rely on their current provisions.
