Hundreds of wounded ISIS fighters and their families are allowed to leave rebel-held areas of Damascus for treatment after negotiating deal with Assad’s government

Hundreds of families of ISIS fighters, as well as some injured jihadis are expected to leave rebel-held areas in Damascus, Syria under a UN-brokered deal, a monitoring group said on Thursday.

Safe passage for the fighters and their families is expected to be given from two districts on the outskirts of the capital, to ISIS-controlled areas in northern Syria.

The aim is believed to be to end ISIS’s presence near Damascus, hopefully leading to a truce between the militants, the rebels and President al-Assad’s government troops.

      They’re following Muhammad’s example, temporary truce is just a strategic tactic during a prolonged war.
