Hundreds of families of ISIS militants and some wounded fighters are expected to leave rebel-held areas in southern Damascus under a U.N.-brokered deal, activists said on Thursday.The families and some fighters will be taken to the ultra-hardline militant group's stronghold of Raqqa in northern Syria and other ISIS-controlled areas over several months, ultimately ending the group's presence in areas near the Syrian capital.A deal was also reached in the last rebel-held district of the Syrian city of Homs that allowed rebels and their families to leave the besieged area.
