Russian-trained troops to take part in Ghouta offensive

Hundreds of the elite ISIS Hunters fighters have recently joined the frontlines in Eastern Ghouta battleground as battles in the sprawling rebel enclave heat up.

Around 700 of the Russian-trained group will be assisting the Syrian Army in regaining control of more territories from the Islamist insurgents.

The battle-hardened fighters have gained a good reputation fighting the Islamic State jihadists in Palmyra and Deir Ezzor, and were capable of achieving great victories, protecting the gas-rich area in the Syrian Desert.
