ISIS to Leave South Damascus Under Agreement With Regime

Fighters of the group and their families will be relocated from the capital to the Syrian desert, opposition website reports

Delegates from the United Nations and the Syrian regime met with Islamic State (ISIS) commanders in a southern district of Damascus to seal an agreement allowing fighters of the radical group to leave the capital toward the Syrian desert, well-informed sources said Wednesday.

The long-awaited deal will expel all rebels and jihadists from the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp and Al-Hajar al-Aswad south of Damascus.

About 2,000 ISIS fighters and their families aim to head the Syrian desert, also known as the Badia region, despite the recent clashes with U.S.-backed forces along the border near Al-Tanf.
