BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – A massive convoy of buses filled with the civilians of the besieged Shiite towns of Kafraya and Al-Fou’aa departed for the southern countryside of the Aleppo Governorate, a military source told Al-Masdar News.
According to the source, approximately 100 buses carrying more than 7,000 people are set to arrive at the Syrian Arab Army’s lines in the southern countryside of Aleppo in the next few hours.
The civilians will be reaching the Syrian Army’s lines from the Al-‘Eis Crossing that is overseen by the Turkish Armed Forces.
Thus far, five ambulances carrying six critically ill civilians have reached the government lines in southern Aleppo, with more to come shortly.
An important deal was reached between the government and rebel forces yesterday morning that would allow for thousands of people besieged in the towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya to reach the government’s lines for the first time since 2015.
