Islamist Fighters to Be Evacuated from Lebanon to Syria

BEIRUT A group of around 350 militants belonging to an Islamist group are set to be evacuated from Lebanon to Syria alongside their families, the Lebanese Shiite Islamist movement Hezbollah announced on Friday.

The Saraya Ahl al-Sham fighters and their families are to travel from the border region of Arsal in northeastern Lebanon to the neighboring Syrian province of al-Qalamoun, according to the Hezbollah war information center.

The evacuation agreement was negotiated alongside the process that two weeks ago allowed around 7,000 people, including fighters from former al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat Fateh al-Sham and their families, to withdraw to Syria.

These pacts were signed after a week of clashes between Hezbollah and the JFS in Arsal, in which Saraya Ahl al-Sham also took part alongside the other militant groups.

In recent days, the Lebanese army been bombing positions held by the Islamic State terror organization in the northeast of the country, as a preliminary step to a planned operation to eliminate radical bastions in the border regions with Syria.
