ISIS terrorists being evacuated from South Damascus: Monitor

BEIRUT, LEBANON: A first batch of ISIS terrorists left their final stronghold in the south of Syria’s Damascus early Sunday under a deal struck after weeks of fierce combat, a monitor said.

Six buses carried fighters and their families out of the ISIS-controlled Yarmuk Palestinian refugee camp and neighbouring Tadamun district, said Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

“The six buses left at dawn, heading east for the Syrian desert,” Abdel Rahman told AFP.
