On April 4, a new batch of militants and their families reportedly started preparing for an evacuation from the district of Douma in the Damascsus subrub of Eastern Ghouta.

According to pro-government sources, the evacuation is a part of the wider effort to allow local militants to reconcile with the government or to leave the combat area.

A previous convoy of militants and their families departed Douma under the agreement with the government on April 3. According to the Syrian state-run news agency SANA, the convoy consisted of 24 buses, included 1198 militants and their families, and was set to move to the northern part of Aleppo province controlled by Turkish forces.

On April 2, 1,065 militants and their family members were evacuated from the Douma district.

Jaish al-Islam, which is the main group controlling Douma, publicly denies any cooperation with the Damascus government. However, the ongoing developments clearly show that the group has de-facto surrendered and accepted a deal.
