BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:35 A.M.) – The Syrian government and opposition have finalized the terms of surrender in east Aleppo after a brief meeting facilitated by Turkey and Russia today.
At 5 A.M. (Damascus Time) tomorrow morning, the Syrian Arab Army will provide transportation for the jihadist rebels and residents that want to leave east Aleppo for the Rashiddeen 4 Suburb in the southwestern part of the provincial capital.
The jihadist rebels will be allowed to keep their small arms, but they must turn-in all heavy weapons in the east Aleppo neighborhoods to the Syrian Arab Army prior to leaving tomorrow morning.
As part of the agreement established, the Syrian Armed Forces will not apprehend any militants for alleged crimes committed in Aleppo; this was one of Fatah Halab’s greatest concerns prior to surrendering the area.
Unlike the ceasefire agreements implemented in rural Damascus, the Syrian Armed Forces will not transport the militants to Idlib; instead, they will be taken to southwest Aleppo, where they will be responsible for their own transportation.
