The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) will open three humanitarian corridors with the terrorist-occupied Greater Idlib region in order to facilitate the evacuation of the civilians stuck there.

Sputnik, a Russian news agency, reported on January 11 that the corridors will be established in coordination with the Russian Reconciliation Center. The three corridoes are set to be opened in two days.

According to the agency, the corridors will be established in the following areas:

  • Al-Hobait in the southern Idlib countryside;
  • Abu Duhur in the southeastern Idlib countryside;
  • Al-Hadher in the southwestern Aleppo countryside.

Sources familiar with the plan told Sputnik that logistic support teams are making preparations to transport civilians who are willing to leave Greater Idlib to government-held areas.

A new ceasefire on Greater Idlib is set to become active at today’s midnight. The ceasefire was brokered by Russia and Turkey.

Last year, the SAA opened similar humanitarian corridors around Greater Idlib during a ceasefire. However, al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), which controls most of the region, prevented anyone from leaving. This situation may reapeat once again.
