 Syrian forces have established full control over a town northeast of the capital, Damascus, after the militants controlling the area agreed to hand it back to the government.
On Thursday, the so-called Jaish al-Islam militants and their families evacuated Dumayr in the Qalamoun region after surrendering their weapons as part of an evacuation agreement with the Syrian government.
Waving the national flag, residents of Dumayr welcomed government forces into their town after the last of 5,000 militants and their family members boarded buses and left the town for the militant-held city of Jarablus.
The deal also addresses the status of those militants who want to lay down arms and stay in the town.
Syria’s official SANA news agency also reported that security forces have entered the town and raised the Syrian flag over the municipality building.
