Syrian state TV: buses enter village in Quneitra for evacuation

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Ten buses entered a village in Syria’s Quneitra province in the southwest on Thursday night to start evacuating insurgents to rebel territory in the north, state TV said.

Damascus is set to recover control of the frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights in a major victory over rebels who have agreed to surrender terms, sources on both sides said.

Insurgents in Quneitra near the Golan agreed to either accept the return of state rule or leave to rebel-held Idlib province in the north.
