Forced relocation: Syrian rebels leave the city in the eastern Ghouta enclave

The government-controlled Military Media Center says that 1,500 demonstrators and 6,000 civilians will depart from Harasta on Thursday.

Beirut: Syrian rebels and their families are expected to leave a besieged city in the eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damascus, in an evacuation agreement that the city will hand over to the government after years of bombing.

Monther Fares, a spokesman for the rebel fraction Ahrar al-Sham, says that the fighters of his group are preparing for their departure. He says that hunters are waiting for buses to take them and their families to other rebel-managed areas in northern Syria.

The government-controlled Military Media Center says that 1,500 demonstrators and 6,000 civilians will depart from Harasta on Thursday.

The deal is modeled after others who have allowed rebels to surrender parts of the territory around the capital and other major cities to the government. The UN and human rights organizations have condemned such regulations as “forced relocation”.
