Buses with a second group of militants and their families were seen departing the southwest province of Quneitra, through the Jaba crossing to northern Syria’s Idlib province, on Saturday.

They moved through the countryside from their departure point in the village of Um Batina, en route to northern Syria.

This is the second batch of militants relocated from the area after a first group left the area on Friday, when, according to Syrian government news agency SANA, 55 buses departed Um Batina.

The operation was part of a deal struck between the government and opposition forces on Thursday.

The agreement stipulates that the Syrian Arab Army will return to the area after militants who decline to take part in the reconciliation process are given safe passage to Syria’s opposition-held north-western Idlib province.

zio terrorists are caught by their own moronic evil actions – there will be no safe place for them and the worst one is when the angel of death descends on them one eventual day

Yes to both, in Mosul they used them heaps [if they could] as soon as they were made available, but in Raqqa, not a lot until the last days, then it was like a flood. There were suspicions that the US had done a deal with Isis, that had allowed Isis to evacuate it’s fighters safely out of Raqqa straight after the outpouring of civilians, I suspect that was the case.

55 buses with 2,500 people, that’s not a lot of hard liners and their families leaving so far, I think they’re going to need a lot more buses. 100,000 unhappy people, but how many of them are that unhappy they want take their families to Idlib to die, elsewhere it’s been about 10% or less that take the buses, that means about 7,500 people still left to go, another 3 trips. The fact that Idlib is about the last bastion for the die hard rebels, and they’ve got no friends left, might make some of the rebels, that would normally… Read more »
