Some 450 rebel fighters and outlaws from the city of Al-Kiswah and neighboring towns in southern Damascus have just turned themselves in to the Syrian Army, thus ending years-long fight against government forces.

Al-Masdar News has exclusively learnt that the militants have made it this early morning to the Command Center of the 1st Armoured Division located in the city in order to conclude an agreement held earlier with the Syrian authorities.

The surrendered militants will remain in their city after having their status settled and handing over all their weapons to the Syrian government.

Last week, thousands of jihadi militants, mostly from the ultraconservative Jabhet Fateh Al-Sham (formerly al-Nusra Front) – with their families have been relocated to Idlib after concluding an evacuation agreement with the Syrian Army.

The agreements recently held between the Syrian government and rebel fighters in several cities and towns outside Damascus during the few past months are meant to expand the government’s control around the capital

Probably mostly local streetgangs of small SFA units. JAF or other radicalised fighters wont give up and will resettle before surrendering.
