100 Terrorists Surrender to Syrian Army in Northeastern Aleppo
The militants formerly fighting in Manbij region in Northeastern Aleppo surrendered themselves and their arms to the Syrian government and filed request for amnesty to return to normal life as the forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad continue gaining ground across the country.
Local sources in Aleppo had earlier said that some 2,000 militants have declared readiness to end fight against the government after rising public protests against the presence of terrorists in the Eastern districts of the city.
“In an unprecedented move, a least 2,000 militants have contacted their families and announced their readiness to lay down arms and join the peace plan in Aleppo city,” militants’ relatives and family members said.
“In the meantime, renowned figures and tribal leaders in Aleppo districts have formed local committees to identify those militants who want to join the peace agreement to introduce them to the national reconciliation committees,” they said, adding, “Popular protests against militancy and the Syrian government forces’ advances have caused a rising despair among the militants and a recent growth in their surrender to the government forces.”
“A large number of militants in Seif al-Dowleh, Salahuddin, Bostan al-Pasha, Karam al-Jabal, Bostasn al-Qasr have laid down arms and surrendered to the authorities,” they added.
