"The main condition laid down for the insurgents is to hand over absolutely all hostages. There is every reason to fear for the lives of innocent people, because Israeli aircraft have made several provocations over the last 72 hours. It is quite possible that they will continue," Reda Ahmed Shreiqi said.
After Eastern Ghouta is completely liberated “the army will concentrate its efforts on Eastern Qalamoun and the southern suburbs of the capital. Damascus should be perfectly safe, that is where the Syrian political and military authorities are.”
Last night the first buses carrying Jaysh al-Islam insurgents and their families left Eastern Ghouta via the Muhayam al-Wafedin checkpoint, the Russian Ministry of Defense stated. It is noted that a total of up to eight thousand insurgents and about 40 thousand of their family members are planned to be evacuated from Douma.
A live broadcast from the Muhayam al-Wafedin checkpoint (northern part of Eastern Ghouta) is available on the Russian Defense Ministry’s official website.
