BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels have agreed to surrender the remaining villages between the Lebanese border and Wadi Barada area after a successful meeting with a reconciliation committee sent by the government.

At least 250 jihadist rebels will leave the town of Serghaya and its nearby villages in exchange for transportation to the Idlib Governorate, a government spokesperson told Al-Masdar News on Monday night.

In addition to surrendering this town, the jihadist rebels will also give-up the Rankous area and its border-crossing in the Qalamoun Mountains; this will result in the Syrian Army’s full control over the rural Zabadani border with Lebanon.

The surrender of this area by the jihadist rebels is a major for victory for the Syrian government forces, as they will now free up more than 5,000 soldiers.

Se marchan a Idlib para enfrentar a Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (Al-Nusra), espero que se maten entre ellos; El personal del ejercito Sirio debe ser reasignado a otras zonas como Zabadani y Ghouta para expulsar definitivamente de Damasco.

Brilliant! 5000 men will make a difference elsewhere. Great momentum.

Now what countries were these rebels from. The fact that they are going to Idlib points to many being non-Syrian, doesn’t it. But I am guessing they aren’t Lebanese either, or else they’d just return home.
