Militants in the town of Al-Dumayr, eastern Qalamoun, are surrendering their vehicles, armoured vehicles and other weapons and equipment to the Syrian Army in the framework of a reconciliation agreement deal reached between them and the Syrian government on April 17.
According to reports, about 1,000 militants and their supporters will leave al-Dumayr under the deal. The rest of militants and their supporters will remain in the area to settle their legal status.
Then, the Syrian Army will establish control of the town.
The surrender of al-Dumayr goes amid the developing Syrian Army operation in the Rastan pocket. Following the liberation of Eastern Ghouta, the Syrian military started to contribute efforts to clear the remaining militant-held pockets within the government-held part of the country. The Rastan pocket, eastern Qalamoun and the Yarmouk refugee camp area, southern Damascus, are among the obvious targets of these efforts.
