Damascus, armed opposition agree on militant withdrawal from Homs - agency


Syrian authorities and armed opposition have made an agreement on the withdrawal of armed opposition groups from the northern outskirts of the city of Homs (165 kilometers from Damascus), APA reports quoting the Syrian Arab News Agency.

 

According to SANA, militants must hand heavy weapons, armored vehicles and means of transport over to the Syrian army, as well as maps of minefields and underground passages. They are also expected to indicate the location of weapons depots.

 

Militants currently control the Rastan, Talbiseh and Houla towns located ten to 12 kilometers from Homs. According to the agreement, militants will have to unblock the Homs-Hama highway and leave the southern outskirts of the Hama city.

 

Some militant groups have agreed to take advantage of the amnesty declared by the Syrian government. At the same time, intransigent militants will be taken to Idlib and Jarabulus in northern Syria.


On April 24, Syrian Minister of State for National Reconciliation Affairs Ali Haidar said that Syrian authorities had also offered to make similar agreements with armed groups active in the Daraa province.
