MURASELON hasn’t yet been able to completely verify the authenticity of this claim.
In order to facilitate the negotiations, the Russian airstrikes have been temporarily halted
According to the purported deal, civilians who have been used as human shields by the terror organization will be leaving either to Idlib or Salamiyah countryside.
