Estimated One Thousand Faylaq al-Rahman Terrorists Leave Syria’s Douma



An estimated one thousand militants of the Faylaq al-Rahman along with their families left the Syrian town of Douma, a source in a security service said.

“Twenty four buses have left Douma this evening via a humanitarian corridor in al-Wafedeen toward Idlib. This has happened within the framework of agreements reached through the mediation of Russia between the Syrian army and the militants in Douma, first of all with the Jeish al-Islam,” the source told Sputnik.

According to the source the Jeish al-Islam will be allowed to leave Douma toward Jarabulus with small weapons after the Faylaq al-Rahman group will be transported to Idlib.

On Saturday, the Syrian army command announced that the government forces had 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.
