Almost 1,200 Jeish Al-Islam Terrorists Leave Douma for Northern Syria



Nearly 1,200 militants of Jeish al-Islam group left the Eastern Ghouta town of Douma for Northern Syria on Wednesday along with their family members within the framework of an agreement with the Syrian Army.

A sum of 24 buses transferred 1,198 militants of Jeish al-Islam and their family members from Douma to the town of Jarabulus in Northeastern Aleppo via al-Wafedeen safe corridor.

It was the second group of Jeish al-Islam militants that left Douma.

A 1,130-member group of Jeish al-Islam militants and their family members had previously departed from Douma.

In the meantime, the Russian Defense Ministry announced that over 40,000 Syrian civilians have thus far returned to their homes in different towns and villages of Eastern Ghouta.

A military source, meanwhile, said that differences and tensions among terrorist groups have made implementation of the reconciliation plan in the region difficult.

On Saturday, the Syrian army command announced that the government forces liberated all the towns and cities in the embattled Damascus suburb except for the town of Douma which remained under the control of militants.

According to Maj. Gen. Yuri Yevtushenko of the Russian Reconciliation center, a preliminary agreement on the withdrawal of Jeish al-Islam militants from Syria’s Eastern Ghouta was reached.
