Syrian Army takes over former rebel bastion in north Quneitra

The Syrian forces have officially taken control of Hamidiyah town located in the northern countryside of Quneitra province after rebels retreat as per an evacuation deal.

According to a military source, the Nusra-linked militants have withdrawn to al-Samadaniyah town to the southeast, where they are gathering to be deported later on to the country’s north.

Hundreds of extremist militants have already left Quneitra to the jihadi-controlled Idlib province under an agreement with the Syrian government.

The same source added that the Syrian forces will be taking over other areas soon including Samadaniyah al-Gharbi, the destroyed Quneitra city as well as Beir Ajam and few other towns surrounding it.
