Syrian government forces used warplanes, helicopters and artillery on Sunday to pound districts of the capital held by the Islamic State group, in a bid to enforce an evacuation deal reached with the militants earlier in the week.
Two Palestinian refugees, a father and a son, were killed during the fighting at the Yarmouk refugee camp in Damascus, according to the United Nations Palestinian refugee agency, which added that thousands of homes have been destroyed in four days of fighting.
Hundreds of IS militants hold parts of the Yarmouk camp and nearby area of Hajar al-Aswad in southern Damascus. They agreed to give up their last pocket there on Friday but have yet to begin surrendering to government forces and relocating to IS-held areas elsewhere in the country.

Then let Allah sort it out.
Should have taken the nice bus ride when you had a chance.
Interesting that the Russians and Syrian govt are willing to bus these murderers to ISIS controlled areas elsewhere rather than indiscriminately bombing them and their civilian hostages
Presumably bus them areas now run by Turkey or the US
Anything to get them out of mortar range of civilian suburbs close to Damascus
Then move on them again in the future up in Idlib or Jarablus or ???
Re your photo about getting on the bus:
On the one hand, and agreed truce seems like an opportunity to get out of Dodge, and either give up arms, or more likely, regroup.
On the other hand, getting into that tour-bus, surrounded by troops, looks like a one-way trip. So, I can understand why the bus wasn’t taken.
Expect allegations of chemical attacks by Syrian forces.
Ironic that the US protects the Izlamik state areas from the Syrian government
