    So they go to Idlib and live happily ever after? Or once they've relocated enough of them, they starting bombing them?

    Who knows. Right now, Idlib is one of the recently agreed upon (by Russia, Iran, and Turkey) "deescalation zones". Whatever that means...

    Today, an evacuation of militants and their families has started from the Tishreen district in eastern Damascus.

    Eight buses carrying 541 civilians and 103 militants moved from Tishreen and Barza districts to Idlib. The Tishreen militants had handed over their weapons, including explosive belts before withdrawing.

    According to unconfirmed reports, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) began entering the Tishreen district.

    According to opposition sources, it is expected that an agreement will be reached to evacuate militants from the Al-Qaboun district within the next 48 hours. It will be impossible to defend Al-Qaboun after the SAA takes control of the Tishreen district north of it. The SAA will allow Al-Qaboun militants to withdraw to Idlib or Jarablus.

    Also: Syrian government and militant groups reach a new agreement in eastern Damascus

    There is, as it turns out, still some resistance in Qaboun, but Syrian troops are steadily securing that district as well:

    They now control the whole eastern sector of that district and are in position to split the rebel areas into two smaller pockets: Syrian Army dominates most of eastern Al-Qaboun

    The government has also managed to destroy the secret tunnel route into nearby areas of Eastern Ghouta, still under rebel control, cutting off their supplies: With tunnel lifeline cut, pressure mounts on Syrian rebel enclave | Reuters

    And the enclave is being torn apart further by fierce infighting between rival rebel groups: Infighting in Syria's Ghouta leaves nearly 100 dead | Syria News | Al Jazeera
    Infighting renews in Eastern Ghouta

    SAA & Co don't even really have to do anything there, at this point, just let these fuckers slaughter each other in their "deescalation area" Do the army's job for them...

    That said, if I were in charge of Syrian military, I'd let the Kurds and their American allies deal with ISIS, for now, at Raqqa and such, and transferred more forces to this front instead, and crush these rebels already. Come on, nothing is more important than securing your capital and all territory around it. Rebels were able to shoot mortars into downtown Damascus for years, for God's sake, even targeted the Russian embassy. That's unacceptable.

    BEIRUT, LEBANON 11:25 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) established full control over the Jirah Military Airbase in the eastern countryside of Aleppo.

    Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army was involved in heavy firefights with the Islamic State (ISIL) terror organization throughout the day at this strategic military installation before finally liberating it from the militants.

    Unable to hold the airbase, the Islamic State finally conceded control of the installation to the Syrian Arab Army prior to withdrawing south to the Maskanah Plain.

    With Jirah Airbase under their control, the Syrian Arab Army will now turn their attention to the Maskanah Plain, where they will look to expel ISIL from Aleppo once-and-for-all.

    Meanwhile, the Syrian troops who have survived for months besieged by ISIS in Deir Ezzor are finally having reinforcements airlifted to them

    No, they will not live happily ever after. I don't know any government that takes kindly to armed attacks against it.

    DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:15 P.M.) – The wide-scale military operation launched earlier by the government forces to secure the last rebel bastion in the northeastern flanks of the capital has finally paid off with the whole neighborhood of Qaboun is now under the government control.

    The Islamist insurgents eventually relinquished most of their demands – most prominently moving to the Eastern Ghouta region – and succumbed to the government following the great advances made by the Syrian Army and the unbearable death toll among the militants.

    Earlier today, the Syrian Army managed to uncover an important tunnel used as a main supply route for the Faylaq al-Rahman militiamen; stretching from Qaboun to Arbin in the Eastern Ghouta.

    A state of chaos has prevailed amongst the rebels as their defensives entirely collapsed.

    Various rebel groups holed up in the rebel-held neighborhood exchanged accusations of treason and concluding secret deals with the government officials.

    Last week, the Army troops suspended its military campaign to allow an evacuation deal to be concluded.

    However, the operation was soon resumed as some rebel groups opposed the negotiations. Meanwhile, militants in the nearby Barzeh neighborhood continue to leave their bastion to the northwestern province of Idlib as per an agreement with the Syrian government.

    Those who accepted reconciliation will stay in their district after having their status settled.

    That's a Kurd, YPG, I believe. The Russians are in the background there, in green camo.
