The rebels officially surrendered both the suburbs of Damascus to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on Friday morning.

This move comes just two weeks after the civilians in both Hamah and Qudsiyah protested the rebel factions that refused to reconcile with the Syrian Arab Army to bring an end to the violence plaguing these suburbs.

Pressured to negotiate by the civilian populous, the rebels agreed to leave the suburbs in exchange for transportation to the Idlib Governorate.

On Friday, the agreement was implemented, with over 1,200 rebels and their families being transported by the Syrian government to their requested destinations.

The overwhelming majority of civilians in Qudsiyah and Hamah remained in their homes, accepting the Syrian Arab Army's control over these suburbs.
