“Do not come, we want to get out” | Popular discontent grows in regime-held areas over the opening of “safe corridor” propagated by regime media, east of Idlib
SOHR sources say that no civilian movement has been spotted near the “safe corridor” opened by the Syrian regime to civilians wishing to leave the areas controlled by the factions towards regime-held areas, under the name of “safe corridor for the exit of civilians” from Saraqeb area in eastern Idlib countryside.
The Syrian Observatory has monitored sarcastic comments by some people who are inside the regime-held areas about the opening of the “safe corridor “: “Do not come, we are coming to them – you open a crossing and do not be afraid because even the statue of Saladin will escape from Syria – prepare smart cards for them to let them enjoy a decent life”, in reference to lack of the basic necessities of life in the regime-held areas.
Yesterday, reliable SOHR sources monitored relative calm in Saraqeb area which is under the control of regime forces and its allies in the eastern countryside of Idlib. Meanwhile, no civilians were seen crossing from areas controlled the control of Hayyaat Tahrir Al-Sham and opposition factions to regime-controlled areas, after reports circulated by regime media outlets yesterday about the opening of a “safe corridor” for civilians as of Monday.
