REBELS, FAMILIES START EVACUATING SYRIA’S DARAA AFTER DEAL WITH GOVERNMENT

DAMASCUS, Syria, Rebels and their families, started evacuating Syria’s southern province of Daraa, Sunday, under a Russian-mediated deal, local media and activists said.

Buses transporting the rebels and their families started leaving the Daraa al-Balad area, which is the old part of the capital city of Daraa, located in the southern part of the city, towards rebel-held areas in northern Syria.

The deal in Daraa al-Balad and other areas in Daraa, was designed for the rebels to hand over their heavy weapons to the Syrian army, and either remain in their areas and embark on a reconciliation process, or leave towards rebel-held areas in northern Syria.

Sunday’s evacuation is the first to take place in Daraa, since the Syrian army launched wide-scale military campaigns, to drive out the rebels from Daraa, on Jun 19.

As part of the deal, the rebels set free five people, who had been kidnapped by the militants in Daraa al-Balad.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, the Syrian army has captured over 86 percent of Daraa province, either through reconciliation deals or military action. The Syrian army has also captured the borderline with Jordan, during the nearly month-long campaign.

Now, the Syrian army is advancing towards besieged areas in Yarmouk Basin, which are controlled by militants allied with the Daesh in western Daraa, near the border with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
