Today, an evacuation of militants and their families has started from the Tishreen district in eastern Damascus.
Eight buses carrying 541 civilians and 103 militants moved from Tishreen and Barza districts to Idlib. The Tishreen militants had handed over their weapons, including explosive belts before withdrawing.
According to unconfirmed reports, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began entering the Tishreen district.
According to opposition sources, it is expected that an agreement will be reached to evacuate militants from the Al-Qaboun district within the next 48 hours. It will be impossible to defend Al-Qaboun after the SAA takes control of the Tishreen district north of it. The SAA will allow Al-Qaboun militants to withdraw to Idlib or Jarablus.
Ahrar al-Sham announced yesterday that forces of the Al-Rahman Corps attacked its positions in Eastern Ghouta, despite that Ahrar al-Sham allowed forces from Al-Rahman Corps to pass from its areas (via underground tunnels) to reinforce its positions in Al-Qaboun district.
Ahrar al-Sham issued an official statement saying that Fajr al-Ummah Brigade has joined its ranks in the Eastern Ghouta region.
Some sources argue that Jaish al-Islam is losing its influence in Eastern Ghouta in favor of Ahrar al-Sham, the Al-Rahman Corps and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS). Many small armed groups operating in East Ghouta joined these groups.
