Rebels to evacuate Harasta in Syria's Ghouta on Thursday: Hezbollah media unit

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Some 1,500 insurgents and 6,000 of their family members will start leaving the town of Harasta in Syria’s eastern Ghouta on Thursday under an evacuation deal, a military media unit run by the government’s ally Hezbollah said.

It added that they would be transported to rebel-held Idlib province in northwest Syria and will travel there in two batches.
