Syria in Last 24 Hours: Militants Start Exiting Yarmouk Camp in Damascus

TEHRAN (FNA)- The foreign-backed militants began pulling out of the Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus countryside.

The withdrawal of militants from Yarmouk camp took place following an agreement between the militants and the Syrian government.

Also in the past 24 hours, the Syrian Electronic Army in a protest move against what it called spread of fabrications about Syria, once again hacked the Reuters news agency website.

The International Business Times reported that the Reuters users faced the sentence titled “stop spread of fabrications and fake reports and articles against Syria”.

Meantime, Syrian troops killed 40 militants from Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Jordan in the Damascus suburb of al-Qonaitara.

The revelation came in an interview published Monday by the Lebanon-based El-Nashra newspaper, which further cited the source as saying that the intruding terrorists were killed when positions of armed opposition groups were ambushed by Syrian army units.

The Syrian source reiterated that all those killed in the operation were Qatari, Saudi and Jordanian nationals.

Syrian government troops have been inflicting heavy strikes on foreign-backed terrorist groups in different areas across the Arab count.

Also, terrorist Baher Abdul-Karim al-Weis of the “al-Nusra Front” confessed that Saudi Arabia is the main funder of his organization.

In confessions broadcast on the Syrian TV on Sunday, terrorist al-Weis, 28 years old from Deir Ezzur province, said he submitted to the “Jihadist Institute”, which was founded by “Muzhar al-Weis”, terrorist affiliated to “Fateh al-Islam” in Deir Ezzur countryside.

He said that Muzhar al-Weis tasked him with communications in the institute, adding that Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Mohamad al-Arefe in addition to Saudi, Qatari, US and British officers have phoned the institute.

Baher al-Weis cited a number of names of Qatari, Saudi, US and British officer, including Bill Gritsun from the UK and Alan Johnson from the USA in addition to Isaac Modie from Israel.

He said the weapons which were arriving to the camps of al-Nusra Front were coming mainly from Saudi Arabia, adding that these weapons were arriving to Syria through Turkey in lorries that also included food and humanitarian aid.

Also, local Kurdish sources revealed that Pishmarga forces have discovered Israel-packed foodstuff and equipment in the hideouts of the terrorist Islamic State of Iraq and the (ISIL) in Iraq.

They said that the foodstuff and equipment have been found at the ISIL headquarters were located in Mosul and Kirkuk cities.

The Kurdish sources refrained from revealing more details about their findings.

Earlier reports also indicated that Israeli hospitals are treating the injured ISIL militants fighting in Syria.

Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu also has made a visit to the field hospital established by the Israeli authorities on the occupied Syrian territories to treat the militants.

Reports said in May that some 283 terrorists have so far been treated in Zif Hospital in the occupied city of Safed, added to several other hundreds who have been receiving treatment at other Israeli hospitals after getting wounded while being chased by the Syrian army.

The foreign-sponsored ISIL terrorists are battling rival insurgents in Northern Syria, using US-made military vehicles, a monitoring group said.

ISIL, a splinter group of Al-Qaeda, triggered a terrorist war in Iraq in the past two weeks, taking control of the Northern city of Mosul and some border crossings with Syria. Its advances in Iraq appear to have spurred on the Syrian branch, which is fighting both the Syrian army and also rival insurgents such as the western-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA).

ISIL terrorists seized Syrian towns near the Iraqi border from rival militants last week.

For the first time, ISIL terror elements have been using US-made Humvees – four-wheel drive military vehicles – in fighting in Northern areas of Syria’s Aleppo province, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Sunday.

The vehicles, which appear to have been seized during ISIL’s recent Iraqi offensive, were used to gain control of villages outside the town of Azaz, close to the Turkish border, it said.

The Observatory said ISIL in Syria had been supplied with dozens of the vehicles from Iraq.

The United States has long supplied Humvees to the Iraqi army.

ISIL terrorists in Iraq have often seized abandoned military equipment from Iraqi forces, including armored vehicles.

Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since March 2011.  Western powers and their regional allies – especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey – are supporting the militants operating inside the country.
