SANA’A – According to a report by pan-Arab news agency Al Mayadeen, at least 500 terrorists who were recently evacuated from East Ghouta in Syria, seek to relocate to Yemen to continue their campaign of terror there.
Al Mayadeen cites sources saying that hundreds of members of terrorist organisation Jaysh al-Islam, which was recently defeated by the Syrian Arab Army in the East Ghouta area near the Syrian capital of Damascus, seek to make their way to Saudi Arabia and from there to Yemen. This relocation would likely benefit the Saudi coalition’s plans to destabilise Yemen and to return to power their puppet ruler Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.
According to Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov, the Russian Conciliation Center is working to transport tens of thousands of surrendered rebels to the northern Aleppo province, in exchange for prisoners taken by the rebel militants. The Syrian Arab Army liberated most of East Ghouta on March 31, when it officially lifted a terrorist blockade of a main highway connecting Damascus with the rest of the country.
East Ghouta had been occupied by terrorist militants since 2012, often using the area as a staging ground for attacks against civlian areas in the Syrian capital.
