|Agence France Presse|
DAMASCUS: A deal has been reached for the evacuation of the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk where Daesh (ISIS) fighters have been holed up in southern Damascus, state media reported Sunday.
The transfer of "terrorist groups" to rebel-held areas of northwestern Syria would begin on Monday, said the official SANA news agency, which did not name Daesh.
It comes hours after the Syrian government and rebels agreed to evacuate opposition fighters from the areas of Yalda, Babila and Beit Sahem, also in southern Damascus, according to SANA.
