Syria's army command on Saturday announced that the eastern Ghouta region was free of terrorists, following the departure of the last militants from the city of Douma towards the north of the country, state media reported, citing a statement by the Syrian army general command.

According to SANA news agency, the Syrian army is determined to eradicate terrorism in Syria, no matter what powers would back terrorists, in order to restore security and stability in the country.

"All the terrorists have left Douma city, their last bastion in eastern Ghouta," the statement said. 

The development comes as the US-UK-France launched a coordinated airstrike in Syria, under the pretext of the unsubstantiated international campaign about the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian town of Douma.
