Local and field news:

On Saturday, the Turkish authorities allowed convoys of internally displaced persons (IDPs) from the towns and cities of Southern Damascus to enter Northern Aleppo, Northern Syria, after initially banning them from entering for over six days.

Adel al-Dimashqi, an activist and a displaced man from Southern Damascus, reported that around 100 buses, carrying 2,133 people, including women, children, and fighters from the Free Syrian Army (FSA), headed from the Abu al-Zendein crossing for the Der Ballout village's camp in the Afrin area. 

The Turkish Army pressures the IDPs from Eastern Ghouta and the people of Afrin to register their fingerprints, and have personal photographs taken, in order for them to obtain a "Kimlik," or "temporary protection document", which is a document that the Turkish government gives to refugees as a residency document.

IDPs from the groups stranded at the Abu al-Zindein crossing, west of al-Bab, 38 kilometers east of Aleppo, Northern Syria, complained over a lack of services while the Turkish government prevented them from entering the city of al-Bab, since the IDPs arrived had arrived in the area six days earlier.

Sources close to the IDPs said that Russia informed them that their condition will remain suspended until the Astana talks begin next month.

The Negotiation Committee of Southern Damascus, held Turkey responsible for the safety of the IDPs who have been stuck in the perimeter of al-Bab city for days.

In a statement obtained by SMART, the committee appealed to Turkey for it to allow the convoys entry into the area, also calling upon the people of Northern Aleppo to pressure Turkey.

Hundreds of tents in random camps near the city of Azaz, Northern Aleppo, Northern Syria, sank, as continuous rainfall in the area caused great flooding.

The floods washed away and destroyed dozens of tents in the Yaz Bagh camps near Azaz, in addition to damaging several cars, water and fuel tanks. No reports of casualties among civilians were given.

Also on Saturday, the spokesman of the al-Rahman Legion, Wael Alwan, reported that the legion accepted an invitation by the al-Moutasem Brigade to meet with the leaders of Jaysh al-Islam in Northern Aleppo, in order to maintain public interest and surpass the current situation, according to Alwan.

In Central Syria, the first group of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham's (HTS) fighters, along with civilians, left villages from near the city of al-Salamiyah, Hama, heading for Northern Syria, in accordance to an agreement with Russia.

Local sources reported that about 20 buses and several cars carrying more than 1,500 people, including HTS fighters and civilians, left through the village of al-Romailah, heading for the town of Mourik.

In Eastern Syria, an explosion occurred while a bulldozer was removing the rubble from a building in ar-Raqqah city center, killing two civilians and injuring several others. The cause of the explosion remains unknown.

Sources from ar-Raqqah reported that a big explosion occurred near the al-Dallah square in the city center, destroying a bulldozer belonging to the primary response team, while also removing the rubble of a destroyed building as part of reopening the city's 'streets project'.
