Title: ISIS Militants Leave Damascus Under Evacuation Deal As Assad Takes Full Control Of Capital

Islamic State fighters began evacuating their last remaining positions in southern Damascus on Sunday under an agreement with the Syrian government, which was reached after months of furious fighting, according to a war monitor and local reports.

The brief ceasefire allows IS militants safe passage out of Damascus to camps in Syria’s eastern desert, where the group still clings on to some territory. Their departure marks the fall of all rebel and militant Islamic groups in Damascus and gives Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government full control of the capital region for the first time since the country’s civil war broke out in 2011.

“At dawn, six buses of IS fighters and their relatives left the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp and adjacent district of Tadamun,” said Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, according to Agence France-Presse.

Syrian government forces and their allies have been fighting to retake ISIS-held areas south of Damascus since defeating other rebel groups in eastern Ghouta, a Damascus suburb, in April. The battle centered on the districts of Hajar al-Aswad and Tadamun, as well as the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp — a once-thriving area home to 160,000 Palestinians and Syrians that has been completely destroyed.

Syrian state media on Sunday denied evacuations of ISIS fighters were underway in Hajar al-Aswad but did not say anything about departures from Yarmouk or Tadamun, AFP reported.

A “number of buses entered after midnight” to carry out the ISIS fighters and their families, The Syrian Observatory said earlier Sunday. The convoy then headed to the Syrian Badia, a sparsely populated region east of Damascus that extends to Syria’s desert frontier with Jordan and Iraq, the monitor said.

Such negotiated evacuations, often arranged by Assad ally Russia, have been a regular feature of Syria’s civil war in recent years. As government forces, backed with Russian air power and Iranian militias, have retaken more territory, most rebels have been relocated to northwestern Syria and rebel-held areas north of Aleppo. More than 100,000 have been evacuated in the last two months alone, according to the United Nations.

Meanwhile, the U.S. continues to maintain a military presence in northeastern Syria focused on crushing the remnants of ISIS in the Euphrates River valley. President Donald Trump has signaled a desire to rapidly draw down U.S. commitments in Syria after ISIS is defeated, but he faces pressure from inside and outside his administration to keep American troops there as a way of maintaining leverage over Assad in post-war negotiations.

Assad's final victory is near.

I like the brightly colored buses used by these mass murderers to flee into the desert. Very cheerful. They would make great target practice for A-10 Warthogs.

Kill them in a big pile out in the desert. Fewer Moos. Win-win.

============================


"as of April 20, 2018, there were reports that numerous Russian- flagged roll-on-roll-off freighters were docked in the Syrian port city of Tartus, which is also home to a Russian naval base.  For years now, there has been a steady parade of these and other types of cargo-carrying ships to Syria, as the Kremlin continues to resupply both its own forces in the country and those of its client Assad. In this case, though, it could indicate a surge in deliveries to restock the regime’s arsenal or expand its capabilities.

"as of April 20, 2018...

As of May 22, that is Old News.

In war, it usually isn't considered news if it's a month old.

And now we see why. If Russia did deliver S-300's to Syria, they are already likely destroyed by the massive air raids by the IDF on Syria. And there are no signs of S-300 gear being operated by Syrian crews.

"To sweeten the deal, Lockheed Martin said it would buy parts and systems for the F-35 from Israeli companies at a cost of $4 billion."

Everybody has contracts to help produce parts for the F-35. Even countries like Turkey. So of course Israel is included. They will make some parts and sell them and they will buy F-35s. If we decide to give them some for free, that will be a separate deal. Or a grant to them and we forgive the debt after a year or two.

Nothing corrupt about Israel getting some contracts to produce F-35 parts. All our allies have the opportunity to bid those contracts.
