Turkey - SMART

The Syrian government has reached an agreement concerning the Yarmouk camp in Southern Damascus, which is outside government control. The agreement also concerns the government-controlled villages of Kafraya and al-Fo’a in Idlib, Northern Syria. The implementation of the agreement will start Monday morning.

Syrian government-controlled media said that "The agreement requires the terrorists of the Yarmouk camp to relocate to Idlib, in exchange for lifting the siege on the villages of Kafraya and al-Fo’a, which together have a population of 5,000 people. The evacuation of the villages will have two stages. We will evacuate 1,500 people in the first stage."

The loyalist media added that the agreement also requires the release of the 85 prisoners from the town of Ishtabriq in Jisr al-Shughour, Northern Syria. The remaining stages will proceed at the beginning of Ramadan in 15 days.

The Islamic State has seized large areas of the Yarmouk camp, where tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees and internally displaced people live. The Syrian government forces, the opposition group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), and the Aknaf al-Beit al-Muqaddas control other parts of the camp. The government forces control the neighborhoods of al-Hajar al-Aswad and al-Qadam.

Activists neighboring the camp reported that the bombing on the HTS-controlled neighborhood of Rija stopped after the agreement was reached, but the bombing on other areas continues.

In 2015, the Jaysh al-Fateh factions, which were established years ago, captured dozens of loyalists from the village of Ishtabriq in Jisr al-Shughour, where there is a significant Alawite community. The factions captured them during battles for the control of Idlib, and the captives’ whereabouts remained unknown until now.

The Jaysh al-Fateh, which was later dissolved, included several factions, such as the HTS, the Ahrar al-Sham Islamic Movement, the al-Sham brigade, Ajnad al-Sham, and others.
