BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 A.M.) – An agreement was put in place in southern Damascus, tonight [early morning on the 20th?], after the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) agreed to surrender their last positions in the Yarmouk Camp and Hajar Al-Aswad.

According to a military source in Damascus, dozens of buses started entering the Yarmouk Camp and Hajar Al-Aswad to transport the Islamic State terrorists to the Badiya region in eastern Syria.

ISIS was forced to surrender these districts in southern Damascus after losing a large chunk of their territory to the Syrian Army this month.

With the Islamic State’s future pending departure, the city of Damascus will be free of any militant groups for the first time in seven years.

[END REPORT]

That turned out to be a long 48 hours, didn't it? But with the tunnels cut off to them for the past two weeks, the last pocket of ISIS holdouts in Yarmouk camp have finally run out of supplies. Time for a nice bus ride courtesy of the Syrian army. Sure with free box lunches thrown in. 

[dusting her hands] Next.
