“Two of the nine towns in Wadi al-Bardi region in the Damascus province (Hosseiniyeh and Bargaliyeh) have signed ceasefire agreements. Meantime, representatives of the other seven towns (Kafr al-Awamid, al-Souq Wadi al-Bardi, Deir Qanoun, Deir Makran, Kafr al-Zeit, Basimeh and Ein al-Fijeh) have expressed willingness to join the truce agreement. In total, 1,268 insurgents have left these towns,” the Russian Defense Ministry’s bulletin said.
The Russian Defense Ministry pointed out that most of the militants had laid arms and returned to peaceful life.
“The rest have received an opportunity to leave for Idlib province with their families,” the bulletin added.
On Sunday, the army troops continued their military operations against the terrorists in Western Ghouta and captured the strategic town of Ein al-Khazra in Wadi al-Bardi region.
The winning back of Ein al-Khazra comes right after the Syrian army regained control of the strategic villages of Basimeh and Ein al-Fijeh in Wadi al-Bardi region.
The Syrian army’s advances came after killing tens of terrorists and fleeing of many others.
