really dividing into several parts the area in green is known rebel controlled territory syrian state media say the army has taken the challenge. and. that means the largest town in the enclave has been surrounded the rebel forces on to speeching those claims this comes as syrian state t.v. showed a group of rebel fighters in their families evacuating on a government bus most of the population however remains trapped in the besieged city syrian state t.v. showed these images of a small group of al nusra front fighters and their families boarding a bus in eastern guta it's said to be taken to areas controlled by the government and it's promising them safe passage to rebel held live province even though the government views them as terrorists. despite the profound devastation and most opposition groups are rejecting the government's offer to evacuate. earlier
and emergency aid convoy delivered desperately needed supplies to residents this should be enough to feed twelve thousand people for one month but almost four hundred thousand people have been living under government siege in eastern guta for five years the delivery was interrupted by renewed fighting. in the past month russian backed regime forces have intensified airstrikes to clear the way for troops advancing on the ground. they've already taken over half of the enclaves territory of the syrian military gains have caused wide scale displacement more than a thousand people have been killed. ok let's talk now to correspondent who's monitoring developments for us from beirut in neighboring lebanon until the syrian army says its advances have divided eastern ghouta into several parts rebel forces are disputing that claim who should we believe. i think the monster everybody balled them a little bit i have to you know see that's the gene has made significant advances
and in fact is in the center of the rebel held east and that they are in the south but the happen the challenge of this stretches the highways that link the north of the rebel held territory to the south a bit in that it is a developing situation. a bit of psychological warfare notably if the rebels concede this either they have lost out then the ground forces might not support them as much at the same time the regime lines do always deed to city events the situation is hardly developing this news is essentially originated because of city and of the reentry of human rights which is i wanted to basically hear she has said that you guys in fact been divided into the past by that i mean east and not they do have a lot of activists on the ground and have been very credible with them information but it is a developing situation and the rebels are resisting. and how warm how strong is that resistance you know the rebels have been under for some sort for weeks now.
well this is not very strong because the rebels are not in a strong position the regime is firstly because they just do not cannot compare the human cost of the military might secondly because it being under siege since two thousand and thirteen me at least last year that seems absent over the last at least since it seems a very there has been relentless bombing by the regime so they're not a very strong position whether you look at their military might whether you look at their supplies the regime is now trying to cut off there are some pleasant dileep from all directions from east from south to north so it's essentially encircling. eastern redoubtable on t.v. and this movie further in the idea that if you missed to cut out their supplies if it is going to be about fighting it is about the opposition fighting the regime the opposition is certain to lose and that's why they've been trying to make their case that the civilians are the ones really dying and it was enough that the
international community should come together that's really their only goal well let's talk about the civilians as you say they are the victims the main victims of this fighting hundreds of thousands of them still trapped in eastern guta what state are they in. there's been absolutely appalling state before the war the population of war that was about one and a half million and now brought into the un it's about three hundred ninety three thousand according to the information that i have received from sources in damascus over the last to be just about thirteen i managed to come up with some general because they're the best at lying and then others the other g. might invest them we'll see them all investigate them or incarcerate them because they don't meet just the regime many of us will have to do want out and really aren't able to they're all huddled in the basements to duty actually to last leaks constantly been getting the people of dual the people of other cities that like us not that indecent sending us that picture as of in the bad conditions they're
