The sources added that eighteen buses crossed into al-Qadam in preparation for Saturday's evacuation.

Earlier on Thursday a Syrian army unit entered Qadam to confiscate heavy weapons and military equipment used by the Takfiri militants.

The militants are from ISIL (so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Levant), Nusra Front and al-Ghuraba Brigade, the sources added.

The ceasefire deal comes after two months of intense negotiations between Syria's government and militants.

Meanwhile, AFP news agency quoted a militant commander as speaking on condition of anonymity: "every fighter will be allowed to leave with his family and one suitcase and his personal weapon".

The areas are already in the process of being demilitarized, AFP added.
