The Syrian government and the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham-led “opposition” continued the implementation of the agreement to evacuate civilians from the villages of al-Fua’a and Kafriya in the eastern countryside of Idlib in exchange for the evacuation of civilians and militants from Zabadani, Madaya, Sarghaya and Bloudan.

Fifteen buses with 750 civilians and 500 militants left Madaya and Sarghaya towards Idlib, and 46 buses arrived to Aleppo city with 8,000 civilians and National Defense Forces fighters coming from Kafriya and Fua’a.

On the other side of the agreement, Kata’ib Hezbollah in Iraq has released 26 Qatari hunters, some of them from the “Thani” family (the Qatari royal family). Kata’ib Hezbollah detained them in Iraq in late 2015. The Qatari hunters were handed over to the Iraqi Interior Ministry and later moved to Qatar on a private jet.

Ahrar al-Sham has also revealed an exchange of prisoners with the the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). The SAA has released 120 prisoners so far. 20 of them have been transferred to Idlib. The SAA will release 630 moore prisoners while Ahrar al-Sham will release an unknown number of SAA prisoners.

Hezbollah’s media wing has published a video showing the entry of the SAA into the city of Sarghaya and Bloudan after the departure of the militants from them. Some clashes between the SAA and a low number of remaining militants were reported in Bloudan.

The SAA blew up the previously discovered tunnel linking up Zabadani with Madaya.

    Where do they go and what do they do once they get off the busses?

      They go to idlib, rejoin the fight, and become sukhoi food.

      It’s much much easier to kill them with aircraft when you concentrate them into a specific area, namely idlib. idlib is a great place for airraids as the area is mostly flat rural countryside, is surrounded by airfields, and is close to lattakia. Being close to lattakia means that the supply line for the aircraft is short: bombs/supplies come off a ship, make a short trip to the airfield, and are dropped.

    “26 Qatari hunters, some of them from the “Thani” family (the Qatari royal family)” -hunting people more likely…

    I read that there was some conflict about the release of those prisoners. See here:

    Quote:

    “But the exchange has been delayed over the identities of the 750 prisoners who are supposed to be released as part of the deal, according to Yasser Abdelatif, a spokesman of one of the rebel factions involved in the exchange.

    Rebels grew concerned the government was not planning to release political prisoners, after authorities provided them with a list of some of the names, said Fahd al-Musa, who heads the activist-run Syrian Commission for Releasing Detainees, which the rebels consulted to check the names.

    “They should release people like Rania Abbasi,” said al-Musa, referring to the Syrian dentist who activists say was taken with her husband and six children from their Damascus home in 2013. They have not been heard from since.”

    Any news about this?
