TASS, April 30. More than 200 Jabhat al-Nusra militants and their family members have been evacuated from the al-Yarmouk refugee camp in the south of Damascus, SANA news agency reported on Monday.
The militants left the area under a deal with the Syrian authorities that provide for concurrent evacuation of about 5,000 civilians from the Shia neighborhoods of al-Fouaa and Kefraya in the north of Syria. Apart from that, eighty-five hostages (mostly women and children) will be release in Jisr al-Shugur in the province of Idlib.
Terrorists from another terrorist group, Islamic State (outlawed in Russia), whose strongholds in southern Damascus are currently besieged by the Syrian army and Palestinian units, tried to break down the evacuation of militants from al-Yarmouk. They shelled the humanitarian corridor used for the exit of militants, wounding 14 people. According to SANA, a bus convoy with the militants and their families is now heading for the Idlib province.
