Syrian Rebels Pack Up In Opposition-Held Homs District

In the final phase of an evacuation deal that will see President Bashar al-Assad’s government take back the area in the seventh year of the country’s war, Syrian rebels started leaving the last opposition-held district of Homs city on Saturday.
At least one bus left al-Waer carrying fighters and their families. Dozens more were expected to follow to bring some 2,500 people out of the district long besieged by government forces and their allies.
The evacuation of al-Waer is one of the largest of its kind. It follows a number of similar deals in recent months that have brought many parts of western Syria long held by the opposition and besieged by government and allied forces back under Assad’s control.
