Evacuees From Kefraya and Foua Arrive in Aleppo as Militants Depart

Hundreds of Syrians evacuated from the towns of Kefraya and Foua arrived in Jibreen, just east of Aleppo, on Tuesday, December 20, as thousands of militants left eastern Aleppo by bus, in a deal between the Syrian regime and anti-government forces.

Eight buses carrying more than 400 evacuees, including wounded and sick, left the two towns in Idlib province on Tuesday, local reports said. On Monday, 10 buses transported nearly 600 people out of the two towns.

Syrian media said evacuation of wounded and civilians in the two Shiite-populated towns was a condition for the evacuation of militants in eastern Aleppo. Credit: YouTube/SMART News Agency via Storyful
