BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:35 A.M.) – The Iranian and Qatari governments reached a deal on Wednesday that would allow civilians and combatants to evacuate four 4 besieged towns in the Damascus and Idlib governorates.

According to local reports, the Iranian-Qatari deal will allow civilians and combatants to evacuate the towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya in the Idlib Governorate, and Madaya and Al-Zabadani in the Damascus Governorate.

Previously, the Turkish and Iranian governments put forth a deal that would allow for an open-ended ceasefire and aid delivery to all four besieged towns.

However, the previous deal was often violated by the Qatari-backed jihadist rebels in order for them to take out their aggression against the predominately Shi’i civilians in Kafraya and Al-Fou’aa.

Very good deal for the SAA/allies ! The rebels used Foua & Kafraya as a mean of political pressure so the SAA couldn’t act as needed in Idlibistan . And this will free the manpower used to besiege Madaya and Al-Zabadani . Now there are no longer government pocket but still a lot of rebel pockets so Rebels basically lost their mean of pressure when SAA still has its .

They couldn’t act in Idlib anyway, look at the area, look at how far the enemy have pushed into Hama, twice now, and the SAA barely rolled back their gains from the first offensive!
