On Wednesday, dozens of civilians demonstrated in the besieged city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta. They demanded that Jaysh al-Islam and its affiliates decide not to negotiate with Russia over the fate fo the city.

They demanded that Jaysh al-Islam and their affiliates to not take the decision in negotiations with Russia over the fate of the city.

Jaysh al-Islam is one of the most prominent Islamic formations in Syria. Allied with the Free Syrian Army, and fighting against the Al-Nusra Front, ISIS and the loyalist forces, the fighters have spread to Northern and Southern Syria. They are stationed mainly east of the capital Damascus.

A local source told SMART that the demonstrators, including women, called for what they called "peaceful solutions" for the city, whilst at the same time rejecting any "military solution".

The demonstrators also condemned the "fateful decision" on Douma by the Jaysh al-Islam and it's allied bodies, such as the Trustees Council and the Popular Movement.

The source added that the demonstrators called on the international community and the United Nations to take all necessary measures to open a safe passage out of Douma city towards "safe areas" which they had described.

The local council in Douma reported on its Facebook page that the civil committee, which is leading negotiations with Russia, met with representatives of the civilians in Douma to inform them of the results of the negotiations.

The civil committee and the Jaysh al-Islam reserve details about the progress of the negotiation with Russia. Local activists have also noted that the people trapped in Douma are unaware of the future of their city controlled by Jaysh al-Islam.

On Tuesday, the leader of the Jaysh al-Islam, Muhammad Alloush, told SMART, "Negotiations are continuing. Great efforts are being made to reach an equation for stopping the bloodshed. We have decided not to get out of Ghouta, and things continue in the framework of negotiation."

The civil committee includes a military commander of the Jaysh al-Islam, a member of the unified command in Eastern Ghouta, and representatives of the civilians in Douma.

The negotiations in Douma coincide with the completion of an agreement to displace civilians and al-Rahman Legion fighters from the central sector of Eastern Ghouta. Earlier, thousands of civilians and fighters from the Ahrar al-Sham Islamic Movement exited from the city of Harasta under a similar agreement.
