Tens of Militants Surrender to Syrian Army in Eastern Aleppo

Tens of more militants surrendered to the governmental forces in Eastern Aleppo, reports said, adding that hundreds of civilians from regions controlled by the terrorists have also been transferred to the army-controlled areas.

The Russian Center for Ceasefire in Syria announced that 66 terrorists laid down their arms and were granted amnesty by the Syrian government.

According to the report, over 1,224 civilian people also left the militants-controlled regions in Eastern Aleppo towards the government-controlled areas.

The Russian center also reported that the number of liberated districts by the Syrian army in Eastern Aleppo has reached 50, adding that demining operations have started in the urban regions of Aleppo.

Also, reports said on Wednesday that one hundred more terrorists laid down arms and turned themselves in to the Syrian Army after they were left alone by a large number of their comrades who surrendered the Old Aleppo quarter to the government troops and left Eastern Aleppo.

A 100-member group of militants from the Jeish al-Fatah coalition gave up fight and surrendered themselves to the army on Wednesday in areas South of the Old Aleppo quarter in Southeastern Aleppo.

The number of militants trying to apply for government amnesty is on the rise, while only a rapidly shrinking 10 sq/km area has remained under their control in the Eastern neighborhoods.

Rifts are widening among Syrian and non-Syrian militants as Damascus has vowed to grant amnesty to Syrian fighters.

Non-Syrian terrorists want to continue battle against government forces, while others want to negotiate with the army for their final evacuation from the city, FNA reported.
