First batch of buses transporting people from Kefraya and al-Foua’a arrive in Aleppo

Aleppo, SANA – The first batch of buses transporting people from the towns of Kefraya and al-Foua’a arrived in Aleppo city on Saturday evening, as per the agreement for evacuating them from their terrorists-besieged towns in parallel with evacuating militants and some of their families from al-Zabadani and Madaya.

SANA’s correspondent in Aleppo said that 15 buses transporting hundreds of people from Kefraya and al-Foua’a arrived in al-Ramousa area and then headed to Jebrin area where Aleppo Governorate has set up a temporary housing center equipped with all essential food and medical supplies.

The correspondent said that prior to this ambulances belonging to the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) arrived transporting more than 50 people who were injured by the terrorist bombing that had targeted al-Rashidin area west of Aleppo where the buses were gathered.

75 buses and 20 ambulances transporting 5,000 people from Kefraya and al-Foua’a were scheduled to arrive to Aleppo on Friday at noon, but disputes among terrorist groups that stalled in implementing the agreement prevented that, with the buses remaining trapped in al-Rashidin area for over 30 hours.

SANA’s correspondent said that in parallel with the arrival of the first batch of buses, buses transporting more than 2,300 militants and their family members arrived to al-Rashidin coming from al-Zabadani and Madaya, and the exchange of buses between al-Ramousa and al-Rashidin will continue gradually and simultaneously until the process is completed under the supervision of the SARC.
