BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels inside the Syrian border-town of Serghaya have agreed to leave the area on Monday, following Russian mediation between all parties involved.
A Syrian military source told Al-Masdar News on Sunday evening that the Syrian Government will provide the jihadist rebels transportation from Serghaya to the Idlib Governorate on Monday morning.
The military source added that all militants, their families, and any civilians wishing to leave Serghaya will be transported on the 8 buses provided by the government.
In return, the Syrian Government will be given full control of Serghaya and the villages surrounding this border-town in the Al-Zabadani Mountains of western Damascus.
Recently, Hezbollah forces withdrew from the outskirts of Serghaya in order to accelerate the surrender of the town; this was one of the jihadist demands.
