Syrian government grants amnesty to more militants in Hasaka Province

The Syrian government granted amnesty to over 70 militants who had laid down arms and gave up fight against Damascus troops in Hasaka province.

(FNA) -- 73 militants from Qamishli city and its surrounding areas in Northeastern Hasaka laid down their arms and surrendered to the Syrian government forces to receive amnesty.

Local officials reported last Saturday that tens of militants that had handed over their weapons to the Syrian Army and endorsed the peace agreement with Damascus have received government pardoning in Hasaka city.

The sources said that the Syrian government granted amnesty to fifty gunmen that surrendered to the army men and applied for pardoning in Hasaka city in the framework of the reconciliation plan and implementation of pardoning decree No.15 in 2016.
