DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:40 P.M.) – Earlier today, ten ISIS members surrendered themselves to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah (Lebanese paramilitary branch) after pro-government forces surrounded a jihadist platoon in the western Qalamoun region.

The jihadist militants will face prosecution in accordance with military law.

In related news, pro-government forces captured the Raas Al-Shaout crossing and all neighboring hill tops after clashing with another group of ISIS belligerents on Thursday.

Drone footage of the newly captured area:

Meanwhile, the ISIS leadership in Lebanon offered a deal that would all their forces evacuated from the Qalamoun border pocket to the Islamic State mainland in Deir Ezzor.

Al-Masdar News was not able to obtain information on how the SAA and Hezbollah replied to the aforementioned evacuation plea that was first put on the table earlier this week.

That would be a magistral error. DO NOT ACCEPT A SUCH DEAL. Syria has enough problems.

They must surrender to the lebanese army or die. Kill them all, so they go to Lebanon.

Horrible horrible deal. Why would Syria want to take terrorists operating in Lebanon? Syria is far more burdened by ISIS than Lebanon. Plus Deir Ezzor is already being concentrated with terrorists and the SAA needs to clear them out.
