More Terrorists Leave Southern Damascus for Northern Syria, Some to Exit Northern Homs Soon
The source said that the third group of militants and their family members left Yalda, Bebeila and Beit Saham regions to Northern Syria via the Beit Saham passageway on 63 buses.
The source further said that the army reopened Homs-Hama highway after almost seven years to ease exit of militants from Northern Homs under a newly-reached evacuation agreement.
The source further said that the militants continue to hand over their arms to the army, adding that the leaving terrorists set fire to their bases and positions before withdrawal.
Those militants that do not join the reconciliation agreement with the army will leave the region for Idlib or the town of Jarabulus in Northeastern Aleppo and the remaining pockets are allowed to apply for government amnesty.
On Saturday, the army managed to impose full control over the Southern part of Hajar al-Aswad region, driving ISIL out of 70 percent of the terrorist-held regions in the Southern part of Damascus province.
The army men continued to storm ISIL’s strongholds in several flanks in Hajar al-Aswad region and Yarmouk Camp and managed to advance against them.
Also, the army’s artillery and missile units pounded heavily the positions of the remaining pockets of the terrorists in Yarmouk Camp, Hajar al-Aswad and in al-Zobeir area in al-Tazamon neighborhood, inflicting heavy casualties on the militants.
