The evacuation of militants and members of their families from the city of Douma to the Idlib de-escalation zone under the supervision of Russian military servicemen began on April 1, the Russian Defense Ministry reported.

“The evacuation of militants and members of their families from the city of Douma [Eastern Ghouta] to the Idlib de-escalation zone began on April 1, 2018, with the assistance of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties in Syria via the organized humanitarian corridor in the inhabited community of Muhayam al-Wafedeen,” the ministry said.

A total of 1,146 people, including 112 militants and 1,034 members of their families, were evacuated to the Idlib province on 24 buses.

Along the entire route, their safety was ensured by Syrian police officers under the supervision of officers from the Russian Reconciliation Center and representatives of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, the Russian Defense Ministry noted.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
