DUMA, Syria – Hostages who had spent five years under the captivity of the militant group Jaish al-Islam were evacuated from the Syrian city of Douma to the al-Fayhaa Sports Complex in Damascus on Monday.

They reached the sports complex via the Al-Wafedeen checkpoint in the northern portion of the East Ghouta pocket.

The evacuation took place a day after the Syrian government and Jaish al-Islam reached a new agreement on the ceasefire.
