About 1,000 militants are going to leave the town of Al-Dumayr under a deal between Jaish al-Islam and the Syrian government, the Syrian state-run news agency SANA reported on April 17.

The militants already started to surrender their heavy and medium weapons, according to the agency.

“The surrender of heavy and medium weapons has begun as part of the implementation of the agreement between the Syrian state and the Jaysh al-Islam militants in Doumayr,” the SANA said.

Some militants will also settle their legal status and remain in the town. According to reports, about 60 of the militants have already choosen this option.

The expected liberation of al-Dumayr will be an important step in the framework of the wider effort of the Syrian military to re-establish control over the militant-held pockets within the government-held area.

On April 15, government troops started advancing on militants positions in the so-called Rastan pocket in northern Homs. Since then, they have liberated a number of villages in the area.

Earlier, the Syrian Army established a full control of the entire Damascus subrub of Eastern Ghouta during a military operation that had taken place from February 25 to April 14.

    Lavrov does the business on COMbbc turd. Enjoy.

      Love it, especially Lavrov’s pointed articulation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, which surely must have pierced the thick headed Yanki numb skulls with a toxic mix of scorn and razor sharp wit. Delivered as usual with stoic detachment.

    Nice to see lots of main roads opening for the Syrians, the US head-chopping, heart-eating rapers and slavers are beginning to resemble a domino topple. Pity the people they slaughtered can’t see that their reign of terror is ending.

    Evidently, the missile strikes from the axis of imperialists did nothing to raise the morale of the militants on the ground. .

      Once these are liberated, the SAA can concentrate further south towards D’aara, and tackle that “ISIS” pocket that still exists out side of Deir Ez-zor..

      The Syrian nation is slowly and surely becoming free… Which of course the evil US/Israel/NATO cabal will not stand for!

      • You can call me Al

        Don’t forget that huge numbers of troops (goodies) are gathering near the Euphrates for a head to head in the East…

        • Joe Dirt

          Please SAA I dare you to attack Deir Ez-Zor! LOL

    • Joe Dirt

      Only took 7 years! LOL

  • leon mc pilibin

    This is a perfect example of a BBC fake news interviewer showing its arrogance,rudeness,and propagating the zionist government line.Lavrov showed his class once again and allowed this bbc idiot to make a bigger case for the Syrian cause by his lying ,biased attitude.
