EAST GHOUTA, Syria – It has been reported by Al-Masdar News that the Syrian Army and Jaish al-Islam, the most dominant terrorist group operating in East Ghouta to the east of Damascus city center, have reached a reconciliation deal.
The preliminary report suggests that Jaish al-Islam have agreed to the terms of conditions to the reconciliation deal.
The reported conditions for the deal are as follows:
- Jaysh Al-Islam will agree to their release prisoners in Douma, including those from the Syrian Army.
- Jaysh Al-Islam will hand over all of their heavy weapons to the government.
- Jaysh Al-Islam will give the government and army full access roads to Douma; this will allow the wounded to be transported to local hospitals.
- Those militants in Douma will decide whether they will go to Idlib, Daraa, or stay in the East Ghouta to settle their cases with the state.
- Food staples and aid will enter Douma and a local police unit will be formed by civil leaders in the district.
- State Institutions will start to work inside Douma after a “short period”. The basic services of water, electricity and sewage system will take priority.
- Individual arms ownership will be organized within existing laws governing administered by the State.
This comes as the Syrian Army continues its impressive offensive against terrorist groups operating in the region. In a matter of a short few weeks, the Syrian Army has liberated over two-thirds of the region that was once a major stronghold for groups opposed to the secular Syrian government.
This deal cannot be independently verified by Fort Russ News at this time.
