EAST GHOUTA, Syria – The Russian Defense Ministry announced that nearly 5,500 terrorists belonging to Faylaq ar-Rahman and their families were evacuated on Sunday from East Ghouta to Syria’s northwest jihadist-held Idlib province.

“Some 5,453 militants and their family members were evacuated via a humanitarian corridor on March 25 in 81 buses to the Idlib province,” the ministry explained.

The Russian Reconciliation Center along with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent played a crucial role to ensure that they arrived in Idlib province with security and all basic necessities.

Idlib province is currently engulfed in an inter-jihadist civil war. The arrival of thousands of fighters from East Ghouta to the province will be sure to intensify the infighting.
