BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – Militants and their families boarded a bus that left the Syrian city of Douma, on Monday, to be evacuated via the Muhayam al-Wafedin checkpoint.

Following talks between the Russian Reconciliation Centre and leaders of the militant group Jaysh al-Islam, military actions have been frozen in Douma and the al-Wafedin checkpoint has been reopened to enable the withdrawal of evacuees from the city.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defence, 100 buses have arrived to evacuate militants and their family members from Douma.

The evacuation came a day after the Syrian government and Jaysh al-Islam reportedly reached a new agreement on the ceasefire, the disarmament of the group and the resumption of the operation to withdraw militants from Douma.
