Eastern Ghouta: State Intelligence arrests 50 people in Douma
 (Zaman Al Wasl)- At least 50 people were arrested by the State Intelligence in the eastern suburbs of Damascus amid a major conscription campaign as regime army mobilizes forces to take last rebel stronghold in northwestern Syria.

The Capital Voice, local news site, said that Saturday’s radis had targeted Douma, the capital of Eastern Ghouta suburbs.  

Raids also included Qalamoun towns like Dumayr and Ruhaiba where dozen of people were arrested for conscription.

 Most of the Syrian young men in the capital's eastern suburbs have rejected the regime’s conscription call but the reconciliation deals have imposed a new de-facto. They should join the army or they might face the military intelligence arrest.

The regime army has sent about 7000 conscription calls for Eastern Ghouta's young men to perform the military service despite some names belong to people killed or displaced, according to name list by the General Conscription Department.

The fall of Eastern Ghouta in April 2018 was achieved in a brutal fashion and had changed the course of the war.

More than 1,700 civilians were reportedly killed in the eight-week offensive.

The Eastern Ghouta was the scene of the first major protests in the capital against the rule of Bashar al-Assad.

The regime had previously issued a decree to deprive anyone who evades reserve service from applying for employment in regime sectors, even though he was among the beneficiaries of the so-called "amnesty" order. If that person was wanted in a previous period, according to media sources.
 
The Alawites-dominated areas are still the main manpower supply for the Assad's army. 

Since the Syrian revolution erupted in 2011, more than 560,000 people have been killed, and more than 6 million people have been displaced.
