BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – More than 1,300 residents of Wadi Barada were safely escorted from this contested town to the nearby village of Wadi Al-Rodah in the western countryside of Damascus on Sunday.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus, the residents will be transported by the Syrian Red Crescent Society from Wadi Al-Rodah to the Damascene suburbs of Qudsiyah this week.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) was able to secure the safe exit of these civilians after their officers setup an agreement with the jihadist rebels inside of Wadi Barada this past weekend.

In the coming hours, the Syrian Arab Army will resume their military operations in the Wadi Barada area of rural Damascus, as they attempt to force the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) to surrender this border region.

This reflects the tragedy of Syria. Many civilians trapped in rebel held areas are not rebel supporters.
