A coalition of rebel forces in Aleppo known as Aleppo Council arrested, today, several rebel groups of Jaish al-Islam for allegedly planning to turn themselves in to the government forces.

Up to 150 militants – all fighting for the Saudi-backed Jaysh al-Islam – who wanted to give up their weapons and surrender to the Syrian authorities were taken to an unidentified place, while their leader, known as commander Suhaib, fled the arrest.

The crackdown comes as government troops continue to retake more territories from Islamist rebels in the eastern parts of the embattled city.

Over 2500 militants who gave up fighting the Syrian Army have been granted amnesty over the past week, the Russian Center for Reconciliation reported.

Meanwhile, more civilians are making their way out of the eastern parts to government-help districts where they are provided with food and shelter.
