Militants agree to leave Yarmouk Camp in deal with Syrian government
 Takfiri militants have agreed to evacuate the Yarmouk refugee camp in southern Damascus along with their families as part of a deal with the Damascus government.
Under the deal, militants with the so-called Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and their families, who have been holed up in the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk, would be given safe passage to the militant-held northwestern province of Idlib, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported on Monday.
Some 5,000 people besieged in the towns of Kefraya and al-Foua’a as well as those who have been abducted from the village of Eshtabraq will then be released in two stages.
According to SANA, five buses transported 200 terrorists and their family members from the Yarmouk camp to Idlib on Monday.
Meanwhile, Daesh Takfiri terrorist have been blocking civilian evacuations from Yarmouk by launching mortar attacks on the route out of the area.
At least 22 people were injured as the Daesh terrorists fired mortars shells at al-Batykha roundabout on the vicinity of the al-Hajar al-Aswad district near Yarmouk Camp.
The evacuation deal comes nearly two weeks into the government’s campaign to oust the Takfiri terrorists from the capital’s southern suburbs after liberating the Damascus’ Eastern Ghouta suburb.
