Syria's war: Offensives on Afrin and Ghouta continue

Thousands escaped Syria's rebel-held Eastern Ghouta into government-held territory AFP correspondents on both sides said, the largest numbers since the regime assault on the enclave began.

Photographers were there to capture the mass evacuation.

Residents of Eastern Ghouta continue leaving the rebel-held area via humanitarian corridors organized by Moscow and Damascus as the Syrian army has liberated over 70 percent of it from terrorists.

Syrian official news agency SANA released this picture of Syrian civilians holding bags of belongings as they flee fighting. "[On Thursday] around 11,000 people left Eastern Ghouta." .

Women and children packed buses to take them out of Eastern Ghouta.

On Saturday morning, "around 10,000 civilians streamed out of the rebel enclave into regime-held areas", Abdel Rahman said.

The Syrian Red Crescent and the International Red Cross help those unable to walk.
