On May 11, several units of Syrian Police and security forces entered the districts of Aqraba, Beit Sahm, Yalda and Babbila south of the Syrian capital of Damascus and raised a Syrian flag there, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).
A last batch of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), Jaysh al-Islam and Jaysh al-Ababil fighters departed from these four districts on May 10 in the framework of the reconciliation agreement, which was reached on April 29.
Before their withdrawal the militants handed over loads of weapons and ammunition to the Syrian Arab Army, according to the SANA. These weapons included an RPG-29 anti-tank rocket launcher, a Carl Gustaf recoilless rifle, two SA-7 man portable air defense systems (MANPADs), seventeen vehicles and dozens of mortars and mortar cannons.
Now after clearing Aqraba, Beit Sahm, Yalda and Babbila districts, the SAA’s last mission around Damascus is to eliminate the remaining fighters of ISIS in the Yarmouk refugee camp and the district of al-Hajar al-Aswad.
