BEIRUT (Sputnik) — According to the source, the militants have been sent to a security committee in order to decide on their amnesty. The withdrawal was accompanied by the Russian military police to the government controlled area.
The source added the militants decided to lay down their arms due to constant efforts to spread leaflets and video addresses with appeals by the governor and the mufti of the province.
On Tuesday, 48 militants laid down arms in Aleppo.
Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011, with government forces fighting Syrian opposition groups striving to overthrow the president, while also fighting numerous extremist and terrorist groups. Moscow launched its anti-terrorist operation in Syria on September 30, 2015, at the request of Damascus.
