Our dear people!
The war is nearing its end and the Syrian Arab Army is scoring even more victories on all fronts. In your areas, there are armed groups including men who are foreign to you and who might have brought killing, destruction and tragedies upon you. The Syrian Arab Army will continue to fight against those who have caused all this devastation until they leave your areas. The leadership of the Syrian Arab Army suggest that you stop the spilling of blood and kick out these foreigners. And for that very purpose, we will establish a safe corridor so they can get out. The armed men who voluntarily hand over their weapons will be pardoned, and the same applies to those of you who were misled. The Syrian Arab Army pledges to our people and our sons to preserve their lives, their homes and their assets. Your choosing the path of peace and safety is much better to you than choosing the path of war and destruction.
