The Jaish al-Islam terror group agreed to stop shelling civilian areas of Damascus in exchange for the aid convoy and for discussions on a prisoner exchange program.

The convoy of 26 trucks delivered basic medical necessities such as medicine and vaccines, as well as other humanitarian aid. 

The Saudi-backed Jaish al-Islam are considered the strongest jihadist group operating in the Damascus countryside.
