    The Syrian army, supported by Russian planes, has stepped up its bombardment of the last stronghold of the armed opposition in the eastern suburbs of Damascus as it is ready to try to break the siege of a military base encircled by opposition forces, residents and witnesses said on Wednesday.
    According to Reuters, "the army is mobilizing elite forces in preparation for a major attack to break the siege of armed opposition to the management of military vehicles."
    At least 200 soldiers are believed to be trapped inside its vast and heavily fortified territory.
    Since Sunday, the armed opposition forces, mostly belonging to the Islamist Ahrar al-Sham group, have expanded their control over parts of the Harasta military base, which runs through the eastern Gauta, the last stronghold of the armed opposition around the capital.
    The opposition stormed al-Qaeda in November in a campaign to ease pressure on eastern towns and villages of Ghouta, which saw mounting air strikes last week.
    The official media did not speak of the attack, but said: "Terrorists fired mortars at residential areas in Harasta and the army retaliated with strikes on the eastern Ghouta, causing casualties among the militants, but gave no further details.
    Civil defense sources said that "38 civilians were killed and at least 147 injured in four days of heavy air strikes since Friday, while five civilians were killed on Tuesday."
    The military base has often been used to strike at the densely populated eastern Ghouta, where more than 300,000 people have been under siege by the military since 2013, in an attempt to force the opposition-controlled region to surrender.
    The gains bring the opposition forces closer to the heart of Damascus after they were expelled last year from pockets they controlled after months of blockade and shelling.
    The military setback follows successive victories that allowed the Syrian army, which relies heavily on Russia and Iran, to recover large tracts of land last year.
    "There were at least 30 air strikes on residential areas in the eastern Ghouta on Tuesday, and a bomb attack on a market in Duma, the main urban center of al-Ghouta, left one dead and dozens wounded," the spokesman said.
    "There is progress for fighters and rebels who are fighting the regime and breaking the lines of the regime and the fronts of al-Ghouta are witnessing battles, confrontations and great losses for the Assad forces and their militias," said Hamza Birqdar, military spokesman for the Army of Islam, one of the main armed factions.
    In the north-west, gunmen, from Islamists to factions of the Free Syrian Army, withdraw from more army-controlled villages in the south of Idlib and neighboring eastern Hama.
    Last week, strikes mounted on this large front where the Syrian army and its allies took control of at least 50 villages in their campaign for the last big province in the hands of the armed opposition and bordering Turkey.
    Heavy strikes by Russian and Syrian air forces forced tens of thousands of villagers in those areas to flee to relative safety in the northern part of Idlib province near the Turkish border, where many families set up makeshift tents on main roads and farmland. Finished
