FSA and Islamic Front Advance on Regime Forces in Eastern Ghouta

The Free Syrian Army and the Islamic Front captured the towns of Buharriya, Qasimia, Abbada and Deir Salman in Eastern Ghouta after fierce clashes with Assad Forces with reports of regime losses. Clashes are still going on in the town of Otaiba, a main supply line that the anti-Assad battalions depend on for the delivery of humanitarian aid and medicines to the besieged areas. In addition, informed sources said that the Free Syrian Army and the Islamic Front are tightening the noose on the town after inflicting heavy losses on the regime forces. Anti-Assad battalions announced they fully liberated the town of Deir Attiya in Al Kalamoon area and the Samiya village near Damascus International Airport. The Syrian Coalition said that gains being made by the anti-Assad forces debunk the regime’s false allegations and lies about its victories and described those allegations as merely “delusional propaganda.” This great progress made by anti-Assad battalions came after the announcement of a revolutionary united bloc called “The Islamic Front” that includes the largest anti-Assad militant factions inside Syria. According to leaders of those factions, the merger was meant to be a show of tribute to the blood of Abdulkader Saleh, the fallen hero who was the core of this revolutionary bloc. The ‘Islamic Front’ is the first bloc that includes anti-Assad Kurdish factions which, according to analysts, indicates the unity of purpose among all spectrums of the Syrian people and the inability of the regime to sow disunity among the fighters who seek to topple the Assad regime.

The Supreme Commission for Education of the Syrian National Coalition announced that the Committee assigned with re-examining the curriculum had concluded its work. The Committee stated that it will raise the suggestions of the Supreme Commission for Education in the coming days to decide on procedures and changes for all subjects in line with modern methods of teaching. Minister of Education candidate Abdul Rahman Al –Hajj said that the Ministry of Education in the interim government will “try make use of all the efforts and resources of the Supreme Commission for Education and Higher Education to build the structures and staff of the Ministry of Education as well as the projects they intend to work on during the first six months.” Hajj added that “great efforts have been made recently such as conducting examinations for high school students, printing textbooks and supervising Syrian schools in the refugee camps as well as supporting schools in the liberated areas through local councils.” However, the National Commission for Education and Higher Education said in a statement that they have not granted any licenses to any outside organizations to conduct exams for students who have dropped out of school. The Commission also denied granting licenses for opening new universities inside or outside Syria. Accordingly, the Supreme National Commission for Education requires all Syrian students not to adopt any educational institution or party to speak for the Syrian National Coalition.
