150 Ahrar al-Sham militants were transferred from Aleppo city to Idlib province yesterday following a deal signed by Damascus, Moscow and a local Islamist commander. The combattants were moved by bus from the Bustan al-Qasr neighbourhood through government-held western Aleppo into rebel-held areas west of the city.

With similar deals underway in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is moving ever closer to securing Syria’s two largest cities. However, the deals also provide the Jaish al-Fateh coalition in Idlib with a steady supply of manpower which in turn will help Islamist rebels in upcoming offensives in the provinces of Latakia, Hama and western Aleppo.

Our partners from www.SouthFront.org have much more on the story:

=> Yes but if you’ve got let’s say 500 cockroaches in a pocket, you’re likely to need 2500 soldiers to besiege this pocket they you can also re-deploy these 2500 soldiers where they’ll be much useful than being stuck on such rodent nest.
