BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 A.M.) – At least 161,000 people have been evacuated from the East Ghouta region of Damascus since the start of the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) offensive in late March, the Syrian military reported this week.

In addition to the 161,000 people evacuated, the Russian Ministry of Defense has reported that more than 3,600 militants have been transported from the East Ghouta town of Douma to northern Syria.

Another large batch of militants from Jaysh Al-Islam and their family members are expected to depart from Douma for the Jabal Al-Zawiyah region in western Idlib.

Jaysh Al-Islam has released all of their prisoners from their jails; thus, completing their end of the ceasefire agreement.
