Breaking: Hundreds of civilians to leave besieged towns in Idlib in new deal with rebels
More than 160 civilians in the towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya will be transported from this besieged enclave to a government-held area, a military source cited this afternoon.
According to the military source, a deal was made between the government and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham that would allow the latter to transport their fighters and families from the Yarmouk Camp to the Idlib Governorate.
In exchange for safe passage, HTS will allow 160 civilians from Kafraya and Al-Fou’aa to leave this besieged enclave in Idlib.
This deal comes just 48 hours after HTS lost most of the Yarmouk Camp District to the so-called Islamic State (ISIS).
The deal will be facilitated by the Syrian Red Crescent Society.
