After a 48-hour truce was reached, two buses accompanied by armored vehicles belonging to the Russian military police entered the neighborhoods of Deraa al-Balad, Tarik al-Sad and al-Mukhaym to evacuate the terrorists who refuse handing in their weapons, official media reported.
According to the report one of the buses left with eight armed men when 10 were scheduled to leave, and it was clarified that the leader of the Daesh terrorist organization, Muayed Harsfosh, a.k.a. Abu Tajeh, refused to leave, as did the radical leader Mohammed Al-Masaalmeh, a.k.a. Hafo.
The Syrian military gave the Russian side a list that includes the names of 100 insurgents involved in terrorist acts and demanded their surrender and departure to Idlib, the last extremist stronghold in the northwest of the country.
If these terrorists do not come out within 24 hours, the army will be forced to launch a military operation to eradicate this scourge and pacify the area, it was said.
Likewise, thousands of civilians who had left the areas dominated by the radicals, congregated in the Saraya corridor awaiting their evacuation to return to their homes.
According to reports by the Damascus authorities, remnants of illegal armed groups in Deraa, southern Syria, killed 250 members of the army and police, 18 mayors and 115 civilians, as well as wounding about 500 civilians and soldiers.
