Iran, Syria Working to Restore Calm to Ghouta

Iran, Syria Working to Restore Calm to Ghouta Iran, Syria Working to Restore Calm to Ghouta

Iran is working closely with Syria to bring calm back to parts of the Arab country that have witnessed renewed violence as a result of increased terrorist activities in recent days, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said. After losing most of the Syrian territories in their control, militants are now largely concentrated in Eastern Ghouta, an area they have been using to launch mortar attacks on the Syrian capital Damascus. Syrian government forces have been pounding terrorist positions in the area to retake it and free a large number of civilians trapped there and struggling with malnutrition and lack of basic medical supplies. Araqchi told Press TV in a recent talk that Tehran and Damascus were exploring possible ways to end the deadly clashes. "We are trying to see how we can de-escalate this new tension and how we can assist people on the ground, who are suffering from this conflict."
