More than 40000 persons return homes in towns of eastern Ghouta

Buses entered the last rebel holdout of Syria's Eastern Ghouta on Tuesday ahead of a possible second day of evacuations as the regime eyed the total reconquest of the enclave.

While Russian and Syrian sources confirmed a preliminary deal on Sunday, a representative of Jaish al-Islam quoted by the AP news agency said his group did not yet agree to leave the town.

Iyad Abdelaziz says there is no agreement reached to have the Army of Islam rebel faction leave Douma for north Syria and hand over the town to government forces.

Indicating divisions in Jaish Al Islam, a Syrian military source told Reuters some of the fighters were rejecting the deal and the army would use force unless they accepted it.

More than 45,000 rebels and their families have been evacuated from eastern Ghouta since March 22 to be relocated in Idlib, according to Syrian authorities. The evacuation deal for the militants from Douma is still valid, SANA said.

There was no immediate comment from the Army of Islam.

It was the first organized evacuation of fighters from Douma, one of the earliest centers of the anti-government demonstrations that swept through the country in 2011.

Syrian ally Russian Federation has struck a deal with rebels in the main town of the eastern Ghouta region to allow hundreds of civilians to leave along with fighters, a group monitoring Syria's conflict said on Sunday.

However, Jaish al-Islam has yet to confirm the report and only said on Saturday that it had agreed to evacuate the wounded to Idlib in northwestern Syria.

Local activists have said that over 100,000 civilians were trapped inside Douma, which suffered devastating damage. Medical assistance has been provided to 49 Syrians, including 21 children, during the past 24 hours, the major general said.

Since Feb. 19, more than 1,400 victims have been killed in attacks by the regime and its allies in Eastern Ghouta, according to local civil-defense sources. More than 1,600 have been killed.

On Wednesday, the leaders of Russian Federation, fellow regime supporter Iran and rebel-backer Turkey are to meet for a summit devoted to Syria.

Syria's army has discovered a complex network of secret tunnels in eastern Ghouta, including subterranean hospitals and strategic corridors used by rebel fighters to move weaponry and ammunitions.

As the last batch of rebels are moving to the rebel-held area in the northern city of Jarablus, the situation in Eastern Ghouta is returning to normal, allowing the families to return home.
