DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:15 P.M.) – Buses set to evacuate residents of two long-time besieged towns in rural Idlib have made it into Kafrayya and Fouaa following deal between Syrian government and  jihadi groups.

Up to 90 buses have already entered the two Shiite towns with extra 30 buses are expected to arrive within the next few hours.

A total of 120 buses shall evacuate the entire population estimated at about 7000 people, including civilians and fighters.

According to source, the convoy shall move to government-held areas in southern Aleppo in one batch for security considerations.

Turkey and Iran have brokered a deal to evacuate the two towns in exchange of releasing up to 1500 rebel detainees by the Syrian government.

Better have some gunship choppers and Su-34 loitering around during the evacuation : last time Shiite tows were evacuated, the roaches attacked civilians 🙁
Never trust anyone into jihad : all are pure evil, no matter their sect.

I suppose that this time the government took his protection. I suppose that the islamist will be liberated only after the population has gone out!

Russia has washed its hands of Syria. There are no more than 10 aircraft including 5 helicopters left and they will be flying back to Russia soon.

What a disgraceful capitualtion! Instead of going in to break the siege and liberate Idleb, the Syrian government is handing all of Idleb, a once predominantly Shia and Christian town into the hands of the Turkish tyranny and its foreign mercenary proxies. Where is Assad’s vow to liberate every inch of Syrian sacred soil?
