EAST GHOUTA, Syria – Drone footage captured the first terrorists, their families and some civilians who were given safe passage from Syria’s Harasta in Eastern Ghouta on Thursday.
They evacuated the area by bus.
According to Syrian media reports, 810 people including 253 men, 157 women, 218 children and 182 militants left the area on 10 buses.
The Syrian Army) reportedly reached a deal which allows some 6,000 people, including 1,500 militants to flee.
This is an important step as Harasta was one of the most populated and fortified areas in all of East Ghouta.
Since the operation began weeks back to clear East Ghouta of terrorist forces, over 75% of the enclave has been liberated. These evacuation deals will help quicken the operations goals to be achieved.
