BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – Another batch of militants and their families have departed from the Wadi Hmeid area of the ‘Arsal Barrens to the eastern slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains in Syria.

According to Lebanese journalist Hosein Murtada, the militants of Saraya Ahl Sham and their families were loaded on the buses in Wadi Hmeid this morning, following a successful round of negotiations.

With this latest departure of militants from the ‘Arsal Barrens, the area is almost under the full control of the state government.

The next batch of militants is expected to leave later this week.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
