Now that Syrian militants know foreign governments deceived them, many ask for amnesty

See the two men shaking hands in the upper left of the photo?  One's probably a militant leader and the other a Syrian Army officer. Many of the men who were duped into taking up arms against their government have by now seen firsthand the conduct of their country's army and know it to be tough but fair. 

The Syrian militants also know that throughout the years of fighting their government, the same government looked after their families.

If that sounds strange -- it's the mark of conscience. What was the Syrian government supposed to do with the women, children, and old men who were left to fend for themselves? Let them starve? Stop the children from going to school? These were their own people. 

It is the Americans, French, British, Turks, and other foreign governments working to control of Syria who have acted without conscience toward the Syrians.

More Militants Surrender to Syrian Army in Aleppo City

TEHRAN (FNA)- A military source disclosed minutes ago that a growing number of militants that had earlier called for evacuation from Aleppo have refused relocation to terrorist-held regions in Idlib and turned themselves in to the Syrian Army troops, applying for amnesty.

The source said that while over 3,400 militants have turned themselves in to the government forces since the army started operation in Aleppo's Eastern neighborhoods, a growing number of more militants and their families are asking for government amnesty.

The militants that applied for amnesty have rejected relocation to Idlib.

Reports said earlier today that the army troops urged terrorist groups to speed up their evacuation from Eastern Aleppo as engineering units are preparing to start defusing bombs and mines in the newly-liberated districts as soon as evacuation ends.

Based on the reports, while over 15,500 civilians and their families have thus far been evacuated from the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo city, the army has called on terrorist groups to leave Aleppo along with their families as soon as possible because the engineering units are waiting for the moment to start defusing bombs and mines planted by militants in the newly-liberated districts.

Reports further added that tens of buses and a number of ambulances entered Aleppo's Western countryside this morning carrying militants and their families.

A group of militants were transferred to the regions of Orum al-Kobra and Kafr Naha and other groups were dispatched to Idlib city.

Tens of buses are now in al-Sukri district to take the rest of militants and their families out of Aleppo.

The army soldiers deployed around the besieged neighborhoods in Eastern Aleppo are calling on the militants to leave the region faster.
