Syrian government have stated evacuation of civilians from besieged towns of Fuaa and Kafraya following Tuesday deal between Russia and Turkey. They agreed to evacuate all residents to places controlled by regime so as to release prisoners from regime jail. The government sent buses to ferry the people. According to reports, all roadblocks where taken off by yesterday so as to allow the transportation of people by buses. It is expected that a total of 6,900 locals will be taken out of the town. Several buses will take parts in the operations. Syria war has been going for close to 7 years and several civilians have lost their lives as a result of persistent bombing.
State owned media reported that buses and ambulances have entered the towns which were overtaken by rebels three years ago holding residents hostage with nothing to eat and no access to health facilities.
Same incident took place last year in which hundreds of people were ferried out of the same town after regime agreed deal for another evacuation from Zabadani and Madaya though the exercise was hampered by terrible bomb blasts which killed very people forcing other people to backtracked fearing they would be killed along the way.
Rebels have always used the two towns of Fuaa and Kafraya as a bait for negotiating their interests from Government. It is unclear whether the regime will archive successful evacuation this time rounds.
Observers in the areas say the situation is terrible with many people especially children starving while others need emergency recalibrations after witnessing one of the most disastrous conflict on earth in recent. President Assad said the evacuation mission will go on as planned without any challenges. He asked the residents in the affected areas to embrace the exercise in order for them to receive government services.
Several journalists and international observers are witnessing the evacuation exercise though no one is allowed inside the town except the buses ferrying people.
