Hundreds of Fighters and Family Members Exit Douma for North Syria

More than 41,000 militants and their families have exited the Eastern Ghouta during the past eight days, SANA reports

Hundreds of Faylaq al-Rahman terrorists and their families were taken from Douma city in the Eastern Ghouta to Idleb on Sunday evening in parallel with information on reaching an agreement for having Jaish al-Islam terrorists exit Douma to Jarablus.

A military source said that 1,146 Faylaq al-Rahman terrorists and their families have been evacuated from Douma aboard 24 buses through the Al-Wafedeen Camp corridor to Idleb.

The source added that a number of buses and vehicles left on Sunday evening under the supervision of Syrian Arab Red Crescent.

This comes less than 24 hours after the Syrian Arab Army declared the towns of Zamalka, Arbin, Ayn Terma and Jobar clear of terrorism after the exit of all terrorists and their families from them to Idleb.

More than 41,000 terrorists and their family members have exited the Eastern Ghouta during the past eight days.

SANA's correspondent said that an agreement was reached to have Jaish al-Islam leave Douma and go to Jarablus, while those who remain will have their legal status settled and the state authorities will return in full to Douma city.

The agreement also stipulates for the terrorists to turn over all civilian and military abductees and the bodies of martyrs, along with handing over their heavy and medium weapons to the state.

The submission of Jaish al-Islam terrorists came due to the accelerated successive victories achieved by the Syrian Arab Army in its widescale military operations to liberate the Eastern Ghouta.
