Last rebels group leaves besieged Barzeh, Damascus
The last group of rebels and other people who wanted to leave the besieged Barzeh district of Damascus have done so, the Syrian capital’s governor was quoted as saying on Monday by state television, bringing it under state control, Reuters reported.
Some 1,012 people, including 455 fighters, left Barzeh in a bus convoy for rebel-held parts of northern Syria as part of an agreement between the government and insurgents, state TV said, Reuters added.
Before Barzeh, many civilians in different districts and cities like Aleppo in Syria were forced to evacuate as part of the new forced departure policies of the Syrian regime.
