Syria: Terrorists’ New Requests Impeding Implementation of Aleppo Evacuation Agreement
The source said that terrorists’ demand to leave Aleppo in their own cars without any inspection have halted evacuation agreement.
The Syrian army has warned that it will enter the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo after the militants called for adding new terms to the already endorsed evacuation agreement.
The Syrian government has rejected terrorists’ request, but has announced that a bus carrying injured or patient civilians must leave Fua’a and Kafraya in return for exit of 10 militant cars that leave Aleppo.
Based on the latest reports the buses carrying civilians of Fua’a and Kafraya in Northern Idlib are still at militants’ checkpoints.
In the meantime, several buses have been stopped at Jeish al-Fatah’s checkpoints in blizzard and cold weather.
Militants had accepted to release thousands of civilian hostages in the two towns of Fua’a and Kafraya in Northern Idlib province in return for the government’s permission to their besieged comrades in Eastern Aleppo to evacuate the city for Idlib.
A security source disclosed earlier today that terrorists groups’ lack of commitment to an agreement on exit of injured civilians from two militant-held towns in Idlib pushed evacuation of militants and their families from the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo into suspension.
The source said that the terrorist groups that have laid siege on Fua’a and Kafraya towns in Northern Idlib once again violated the evacuation agreement’s terms, leaving negative impact on the trend of transferring militants and their families from Eastern Aleppo.
The Arabic language desk of Sputnik reported that only one bus could take the militants and their families out of Aleppo yesterday and after that evacuation operation was suspended.
The source further added that it was agreed that the last group of militants and their families leave Aleppo in return for evacuation of the injured and patient civilians on 8 buses from Fua’a and Kafraya, but terrorists prevent exit of buses carrying the injured and patients from the two towns in Idlib, violating the terms of the evacuation agreement.
The source went on to say that relevant officials are trying hard to pave the ground for the restart of civilian evacuation from Fua’a and Kafraya.
Based on the latest reports 15,500 militants and their families have thus far left Aleppo and the army has called for faster evacuation of militant from the Eastern neighborhoods to dispatch engineering units to defuse terrorist-planed bombs and mines in the newly-freed districts.
