The second – and virtually last – batch of jihadi fighters was evacuated today from several towns in Western Ghouta to the northwestern province of Idlib, in accordance with an earlier agreement with the Syrian government.
Up to 2000 militants with their families from several Western Ghouta towns – including Khan al-Shih, Zakiyah, Al Taybeh and Al Muqaylibah have left their strongholds after handing over their heavy weapons to the Syrian Army.
A video clip was released showing militants handing over two Shilka vehicles they had seized from the Syrian Army earlier. They [militants] also blew up their headquarters and dismantled IEDs.
The Syrian government has engaged in evacuation deals in several towns in order to expand its control around the capital.
