Important: Here's how the Russian brokered deal to evacuate #Douma involving #SAA & Jaysh al Islam (JAI) went sour, paving the way for a widespread military operation today in the last trapped rebel enclave in East #Ghouta
1. Yesterday the Russian negotiator & Jaysh al Islam agreed on several points & a deal was made pending final confirmation which would see weapons handed over, some militants taken to #Jarablus & others to stay
2. Then when the meeting occurred (Yesterday) to formalize the arrangement’s Jaysh al-Islam withdrew from some of the agreed points & were given a time-frame to respond to
3. Jaysh al Islam changed their negotiator for the meeting replacing Abo Ammar Dalwan (Head of JAI’s political office) to Abo Qusay al-Deirani assistant to the head of JAI & security official.
4. One of the reasons for JAI’s withdrawal from the negotiations at end of the meeting was due to issues over giving over heavy weapons, preferring to only give it over till a wider political solution is made, in Syria in terms of those wanting to stay in #Douma
5. The idea was those whose wanting to stay could stay and become an auxiliary force to the #SAA fighting #Nusra & #ISIS or guarding #Douma as a local police force
6. Those who wanted to leave would be taken to #Jarablus in Aleppo which is held by Turkish backed Euphrates Shield
7. The agreement was that JAI gives over its heavy weapons only at the start of the process and the #SAA withdraws its heavy weapons from around #Douma in a de-escalation phase
8 .JAI asked the Russians If they could guarantee whether the #SAA would withdraw their heavy weapons to which the Russians replied we can guarantee that warplanes won’t be used & some heavy weapons would be withdrawn accordingly
9. Heavy weapons would be handed over to #SAA with Russian military police observing the whole process over a period of three days
10. Then over a period of 1 week, JAI handover its light and medium weapons, and the #SAA withdraws its fighting units from the area
11. Those who hand over their weapons can enter a reconciliation agreement & apply for joining the police force over a 2 week period and thus guard their area with #Russia being the guarantor
12. A fighting brigade of JAI remnants would also be created allowing those to fight alongside #SAA against extremist groups elsewhere
13. The new brigade & Police force made up of JAI remnants are given weapons and support by the Russians
14. Russian military police was meant to be present at the checkpoints and the area to guarantee all of this
15. After weapons are handed over to #SAA a committee from the Damascus C.S governorate comes into #Douma and attempts to solve all of the issues the city is suffering from – services – water ect.
16. All civilians set to return to their homes, those in #Douma facing military service would be given a temporary amnesty
17. #SAA and security forces won’t enter the city, then the pro government captives get handed back over to the #SAA through the Russians
18. Russians left meeting stating that they are awaiting a written response from JAI by 8.00 PM affirming that the handing over of weapons is compulsory for any deal to continue
19. After that the negotiations stopped and a response never came, and since the afternoon today all hell has been breaking loose in #Douma with heavy fighting and shelling, in both #Douma & #Damascus
