Al-Nusra’s mortar units shelled nearby areas of a hospital in Tishrin district North of al-Qaboun district, violating the truce in the region.
The army’s artillery and missile units carried out a retaliatory attack and pounded the remaining positions of Al-Nusra in al-Qaboun.
Local sources said on Monday that devastating advances of the Syrian Army troops in Eastern Ghouta caused terrorist groups to ask for rapid evacuation from al-Qaboun district.
The sources said that after the army soldiers destroyed several main tunnels of terrorists, liberated a number of building blocks and laid siege on al-Qaboun, the terrorist groups begged for rapid evacuation from the district.
The sources added that the terrorist front in al-Qaboun was on the verge of complete collapse after the recent advances of the army in the district.
Other sources reported that the army ceased its military operations in the neighborhood of al-Qaboun as militants agreed to surrender and negotiate an evacuation deal.
According to latest reports, the Syrian pro-government forces were making significant advances inside the heartland of militants, forcing them to re-consider a deal that they had refused months ago.
The reports further added that the Syrian army and militants started talks in al-Qaboun to pave the ground for the evacuation of gunmen and their family members and relocate them to Idlib.
Some gunmen intended to leave al-Qaboun for other regions in Eastern Ghouta.
