BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – As of mid-afternoon on Tuesday, another record number of defeated rebel fighters and their family members have departed from various districts of Damascus’ East Ghouta region for militant-controlled northwest Syria.

According to reports, a total of 6,788 insurgents, their relatives and other people have left East Ghouta in the last hour; they are being carried out in 105 buses provided by the Syrian government.

About sixteen hundred people within the entire batch are rebels. The fighters are noted to have come from the now capitulated East Ghouta districts of Jobar, Zamalka, Arbeen and Ayn Tarma.

Moreover, sources talk about another batch of 831 people (139 militants among them) preparing to leave East Ghouta on thirteen buses in the hours to come.

Updates to follow as the situation develops and more confirmed information becomes available.
