Rif Dimashq governorate - SMART

Most members of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) left the cities and towns of Eastern Ghouta for Northern Syria, as part of an agreement between the al-Rahman Legion of the Free Syrian Army and the Syrian government. The HTS is an opposition group previously known as al-Nusra Front, consisting of fighting groups including the Haqq Brigade, Jabhat Ansar al-Deen, and Jaysh al-Sunnah.

On Tuesday, the spokesman for the al-Rahman Legion, Wael Alwan, told SMART that most HTS members, of which there are 240 in total, evacuated with the first and second groups of displaced persons from the cities and towns of Eastern Ghouta.

Earlier, the al-Rahman Legion reported that Russia had delayed in implementing an agreement to remove HTS members from Eastern Ghouta, under the pretext of a military campaign on the region by the Syrian government. Two months ago, Syrian government forces launched a military campaign on Eastern Ghouta, which ended after they had seized most areas.

The HTS consists mainly of the Fatah al-Sham Front (al-Nusra Front formerly), which is classified internationally on a list of terrorist organizations, because of it's alleged links to al-Qaeda.

On Tuesday, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that around 13,000 civilians and fighters from the al-Rahman Legion left Eastern Ghouta for Northern Syria, as part of an agreement which began on Saturday.

Early this month, 13 HTS members left for the Idlib province, Northern Syria to avoid the Jaysh al-Islam arresting them in the city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta.

Last week, thousands of civilians and members of the Ahrar al-Sham Islamic Movement left Eastern Ghouta, as part of a similar agreement in the city of Harasta. Negotiations are underway concerning the Jaysh al-Islam-controlled city of Duma.
