The first batch of jihadist militants and their families have begun leaving Wadi Barada as agreed in the ceasefire deal.

The first to leave account for around 400 people who left in 20 buses to go to the jihadist stronghold of Idlib governorate.

Meanwhile the Syrian Army have begun entering towns in Wadi Barada and setting up checkpoints to secure the region.

Reports have also emerged that some al-Nusra fighters are clashing with other jihadist factions today in Kafreer Al-Zeet town in Wadi Barada because of disagreements regarding the ceasefire deal.

Around 3,500 of the militants are to stay in Wadi Barada as part of an amnesty deal with the Syrian government. Those not originally from the region are the ones being transferred to Idlib.

Como me gustaría justo en el camino un BUUOOM en el autobus, pero no se puede, los acuerdos hay que respetarla, espero que termine muy pronto y luego el personal del ejercito se quede a limpiar de otros mercenarios de la zona.
