BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 A.M.) – The first buses departed from Madaya and Al-Zabadani this morning as part of the Iranian-Qatari agreement to transfer the militants and their families to the Idlib Governorate.

According to local activists in Damascus, more than 25 buses filled with militants and their families left the towns of Madaya and Al-Zabadani this morning after ambulances and aid trucks arrived last night to help the wounded and sick.

The 25+ buses are currently heading towards an undisclosed location in the Idlib Governorate.

Despite the uplifting news from Madaya and Al-Zabadani, residents from the villages of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya have been temporarily blocked from leaving the Idlib Governorate; this is due to growing security concerns after the jihadist rebels attacked several buses last night.
