Following the collapse of militant defenses in the Wadi Barada area northwest of Damascus, militant groups will leave the town of Sirghaya and the areas east of the town of Zabadani at the Syrian-Lebanon border, according to pro-government sources and media activists.
The move is reported to be a part of the wide reconciliation agreement made during the government operation in Wadi Barada. If it’s implemented, government forces will secure a large part of the Syrian-Lebanon border.
Sirghaya, Buqqayn and Madaya will allegedly be the villages where this agreement will be implemented soon. Then, the rest of the militant-held area along the border will be also surrendered to government forces.
