On Saturday, the Syrian Government’s green busses will officially enter Khan al-Shieh to facilitate the transfer of Islamist fighters from the Damascus countryside to Idlib province.

According to a military source debriefing Al-Masdar News, over 400 rebel combattants and related family members will leave Khan al-Shieh and subsequently be driven to the Jaysh al-Fateh heartland in northwestern Syria.

However, the full evacuation will be implemented gradually over the next week. Several hundred others will effectively disband and have their cases settled by local authorities in accordance with Bashar al-Assad’s amnesty decree for insurgents.

In addition, rebel forces will surrender all their heavy and medium weaponry to the Syrian Armed Forces while the latter will be given maps of mine fields and tunnels in the area.

Exactly one week ago, Al-Masdar News was the first news outlet to break the story of the de facto West Ghouta surrender. Since then, the town of Khan al-Shieh has not witnessed any clashes at all and relations between the warring parties have improved significantly.

Nope, at least, not now. Doing so helps much much more than simply killing them : those who were drafted by force in the ‘rebel’ forces will not follow, it also avoid many civilians to be killed and more destructions. If you launch an urban warfare, SAA will also get useless losses. Now, the fighters who will move to Idlib will go on fightin -without their heavy weapons- and likely get killed anyway… Moreover, maintaining a siege means you have 5-10 times the forces of the besieged ones.
