On April 19th, Al-Masdar News reported that the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) presence in Dumayr was over after the government and rebel forces established a comprehensive ceasefire agreement.
“The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL) presence in the village of Dumayr has come to an end after a recent meeting between the Syrian government forces and rebels in east Damascus.
The factions fighting under ISIL’s flag, Liwaa Al-Sadeek and Liwaa Rajal Al-Malahm, were given an ultimatum on Monday evening: either leave Dumayr or turn-in their weapons to the rebel or government forces.
If the terrorist factions agree to leave Dumayr, they will be given safe passage by the Syrian Red Crescent to the nearest ISIL controlled area.”
ISIS factions agreed to leave Dumayr, but only if they would be guaranteed a safe transfer to the Al-Raqqa Governorate.
The government and rebel forces agreed to allow the U.N. to transport 440 ISIS affiliates from Dumayr to Al-Raqqa’s eastern countryside.
The transport was made up of approximately 290 ISIS fighters and 150 members of their families that were living in Dumayr.
They would be transported by 8 buses on Wednesday afternoon; thus, ending ISIS’ long-standing presence in the town of Dumayr
