ISIS terrorists are reportedly preparing to withdraw from the Al-Yarmouk camp south of the Syrian capital of Damascus.
According to unconfirmed reports, ISIS had reached an evacuation agreement with local Palestinian leaders. The agreement will alllow the evacuation of ISIS militants and their supporters from the camp with the approval of the Syrian government.
According to local sources, ISIS distributed leaflets to the people in mosques inside the Al-Yarmouk camp and called on those who wished to leave the camp to the ISIS-held areas in eastern Syria. The leaflets stated that ISIS opens the door for registration for civilians who wish to exit to “the lands of the Caliphate” east of the country, and ISIS prepared several points to register in the camp.
ISIS also told its fighters in the camp that “immigration” is a religious duty, and also told them that the first batch will leave in the coming days to eastern Syria. Moreover, the fighters and the civilians who wish to leave have reportedly started selling their property in the area.
It is expected that ISIS has agreed to withdraw as a result of the severe shortage of manpower in eastern Syria. It is worth mentioning that the fighters of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) have also withdrawn from their positions in Al-Yarmouk camp to Idlib province.
In the meantime, the third batch of civilians and militants who have been evacuated from the Barza district east of the capital Damascus to Idlib province has arrived, where 33 buses carrying 1,700 civilians and militants reached Idlib today, and another 6,000 civilians and militants are expected to be evacuated from the district in the coming days.
