Syria: Terrorists Withdraw from Another Key Region in Eastern Ghouta
The sources said that the army units engaged in fierce clashes with the terrorists in the Southern part of Eastern Ghouta and seized control over Jesrin.
They went on to say that the army gained fire control over Saqba settlement that is under the army’s siege from its Northern, Eastern and Southern directions.
The sources further said that Faylaq al-Rahman terrorist group has moved its operation room to Zmelka settlement in the depth of Eastern Ghouta after the army’s advances in the region.
Arab media reports said on Friday that the Jeish al-Islam militant group was forced to come into terms with the Syrian army over Eastern Ghouta.
The reports claim that the Syrian Army and Jeish al-Islam agreed to the terms of an agreement that would have the latter turn their heavy weapons into the government and Russian military.
The report further said according to the agreement, Jeish al-Islam will release prisoners in Douma, including those from the Syrian Army, hand over all their heavy weapons to the government, and give the government and army full access roads to Douma to take the wounded to local hospitals.
Also according to the agreement, the militants in Douma will decide whether they will go to Idlib, Dara’a, or stay in Eastern Ghouta to settle their cases with the state and receive amnesty.
Food staples and aid will enter Douma and a local police unit will be formed by civil leaders in the district, according to the agreement.
State Institutions will also start to work inside Douma after a “short period”. The basic services of water, electricity and sewage system will take priority.
Individual arms ownership will be organized within the existing laws administered by the State.
The report added that the Russians have mediated the terms between the two parties.
