Syria: Al-Nusra Gunmen Agree to Leave Yarmouk Refugee Camp

6 May 2017 16:02


The Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) has informed the Syrian government delegation of its agreement for evacuating the Yarmouk Palestinian Refugees Camp in the Southern countryside of Damascus city, media sources reported on Saturday.

The AMN website reported that negotiations between a delegation of the Syrian Army and commanders of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board whose members of mainly from the Al-Nusra) have finally resulted in a verbal agreement to have the al-Qaeda-affiliated fighters in the Yarmouk pocket depart for militant-held regions in Idlib province.

The source added that Al-Nusra’s positions and residential areas in Yarmouk will be handed over to the army units once the final formalities of the deal are negotiated and Tahrir Al-Sham Hay’at militants leave for Idlib province safely.

Local sources said in late April that the terrorists of ISIL and Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at engaged in a fresh round of fierce clashes in the Yarmouk camp, after the former launched three suicide attacks on the latter.

The sources said that ISIL detonated three bomb-laden suicide vehicles near the defense lines of Tahrir al-Sham, a coalition formed by Al-Nusra Front, inflicting major losses on the rival group.

They said that the clashes set fire at vast regions in the camp.

Reports from the camp said that a number of terrorists from both sides were killed in the clashes.

In November, the Syrian government gave a last ultimatum to the ISIL and Al-Nusra terrorists to leave Yarmouk or wait for the army’s crushing attack.

The AMN website reported that the Syrian government had in early November given a month to the two terrorist groups to leave the camp, but after their refusal launched mortar and missile attacks against them as a warning.

ISIL controls nearly 80 percent of Yarmouk camp and al-Nusra Front is in charge of the remaining 20 percent.

Al-Nusra Front is trapped in the siege of ISIL and both of the terrorist groups are trapped in the circle of Syrian government forces.
