DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:25 P.M.) – Up to 15 rebel fighters have turned themselves in to the Syrian government in an Eastern Ghouta town as more civilians are granted safe exit from embattled area.
According to a military source, 15 militants from the al-Qaeda-linked Faylaq al-Rahman group – including two snipers – have surrendered to the Syrian Army in Kafr Batna town.
Kafr batna, a former key bastion for the ultraconservative faction, has fallen to the government forces two days ago.
Meanwhile, fierce fighting is currently taking place as the Army troops launched an assault to recapture Hazah and Ayn Tarma Valley.
