MOSCOW, March 30. /TASS/. The Syrian military forces have detained and neutralized more than 30 terrorists wearing explosive belts in various humanitarian corridors since civilian evacuations began in Eastern Ghouta, SANA news agency reported with reference to a military source.

The militants were among civilians and planned terrorists attacks "to blame the Syrian state," the source said.

Besides, six women were detained, with four of them wearing explosive belts, and two having the belts in their bags, he added.

Major-General Yuri Yevtushenko, Chief of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties in Syria, said on Thursday that more than 136,000 people have left Eastern Ghouta via the humanitarian corridors since the humanitarian pauses were announced.

On February 24, the UN Security Council approved Resolution 2401 demanding a 30-day ceasefire across Syria to allow aid access to the population. A daily five-hour humanitarian pause was introduced. According to the Russian Center for Reconciliation, militants shelled the humanitarian corridor set up for civilians willing to exit from the enclave on first days of the pause, though later the situation in Eastern Ghouta substantially improved.
