(CNN)As many as 100 civilians, including 35 in need of medical attention, were evacuated from the besieged rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta to the Syrian capital on Tuesday, according to an armed group and state media.

Syrian state TV broadcast footage showing families disembarking from a bus and a van at a checkpoint on the outskirts of Damascus. One woman, who could hardly walk, was seen boarding an ambulance.
