Idlib, SMART

On Thursday, buses transported the last group of residents from the towns of Kafarya and al-Fou’a, 5 kilometers north of Idlib, Northern Syria. The buses transporting prisoners from the Syrian government forces’ prisons are expected to arrive in the Idlib countryside via an exchange crossing in the al-Iss area, Southern Aleppo.

Activists, who followed the implementation of the agreement between Iran and the opposition faction Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), reported that the evacuation started on Thursday at midnight, as the HTS allowed the evacuation of 15 injured people from Kafarya and al-Fou’a in return for the release of four prisoners from the Syrian government and its supporting militias' prisons in the towns, as a "gesture of goodwill."

Twenty minutes after the evacuation of the injured, 20 buses transporting the residents of Kafarya and al-Fou’a, including fighters from loyalist militias, left the towns. The pace of evacuation increased as all residents and fighters were evacuated by 5:30am on Thursday morning.

A SMART reporter stated that the buses crossed the exchange area in al-Iss, Southern Aleppo. The reporter added that 36 buses transporting prisoners from the Syrian government forces’ prisons were expected to arrive in the Idlib governorate, Northern Syria in the hours to come.

On Wednesday, 120 buses entered Kafarya and al-Fou’a to evacuate 6,900 people, including fighters, as part of an agreement between Iran and the HTS.  

Earlier, the HTS reached agreements with the Syrian government about the two towns; however, the most recent agreement included the evacuation of some residents from the towns in return for the evacuation of the HTS fighters from the al-Yarmouk camp for Idlib.
