12:02 pm
advantage of this russian offer. well the russian military telling the rebels that you can leave with your family we're going to guarantee your safety there are reports from reuters saying that the syrian rebel spokesman said that russia is only interested in escalating the situation and in force this placement not directly addressing the offer but what we understand is that the rebels are not going to accept this at least for the time being they're not under enough pressure if if that's the right way to put it because we have to remember in aleppo during the fight for aleppo it was only when the rebels were surrounded in three small enclaves that they said fine we will surrender we will lay down our arms and we are leaving but clearly russia trying to tell the people of eastern that the rebels are holding hostages in one way or another telling them that the rebels have the key to end this conflict if they decide to leave i was saying time we had attempted

12:04 pm
the funny thing stand how long can the rebels hold out there in the. well it's the enclave is approximately one hundred ten square kilometers what we understand is that the pro-government alliance has taken approximately thirty percent of that territory basically in the east and the eastern side an area which is basically farmland small towns fighting of course will be different inside built up areas but the government's tactic is to isolate the different areas especially the main population centers stuff they want to isolate that area duma mystery and once they do that they're going to cut the rebel supply lines cut the enclave in half and put more pressure on the rebels to force a surrender it is clear from the start that the pro-government alliance launched this bombing campaign over two weeks ago to recapture eastern ghouta they've made that clear in their words in their actions and they're not willing to compromise but it would be there for now thanks so much there in the hold of now let's take you some live pictures we're going to bring in any moment now there we go that is
