A stalled Islamic State evacuation convoy in eastern Syria will travel north to government-held Sukhna before crossing towards Deir al-Zor region, which is held by the militants, a commander in the pro-Syrian government military alliance said.

An operation to exchange wounded Islamic State fighters in the convoy for the bodies of an Iranian soldier and two other soldiers in the pro-government alliance is beginning, the commander said.
