Syria: rebels begin to abandon Homs

It is a truce that could open the door to similar agreements in other fronts. The city of Homs in central Syria, is about to be fully controlled by Government forces. The rebels were entrenched in the Waer and who wish to continue the fight, were allowed to leave the city, along with their families. The commitment was established without foreign intervention but is supervised by the UN.

The Governor of Homs, Talal Barazi, explained that this Wednesday broke a first group of 300 fighters and four hundreds of women and children. The agreement covers 2000 rebels and their families.

Waer was the last neighborhood in the hands of the insurgents. The compromise was negotiated after a Government offensive that had the support of the Russian air force. Hims had 800 1000 inhabitants in 2011. Today the city displays the scars of a civil war that has already done more than 250 1000 dead.
