ISIS Agrees to Evacuate Fighters from Lebanese-Syrian Border

Preparations have been completed to evacuate Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists along with their families from the western Qalamoun area of the countryside of Damascus to the eastern region of Syria.

A SANA reporter said a number of buses and 11 Red Crescent ambulances have gathered at the Sheikh Ali/Al-Rumiyat crossing in Juroud Qara in order to transport the terrorists.

The reporter added that ISIS militants had set fire to the group’s property and vehicles in an attempt to hide their logistical and intelligence links with the anti-Syrian parties.

On Sunday, a military source said that a deal was reached between the Lebanese Hezbollah group and ISIS on the withdrawal of the remaining terrorists from the western Qalamoun.
