2200 people, including 200 fighters, left Waer neighborhood to Idlib
(Zaman Al Wasl)- The seventh batch of al-Waer neighborhood’s evacuees on Sunday left the last rebel stronghold in Homs city, heading northern Idlib province due to an evacuation deal forced at least 12200 people to leave Homs in weekly batches, local reporter said.

The buses loaded with 2200 people, including 200 rebel fighters, 610 women and 900 children, resuming an evacuation expected to be among the largest of its kind under a Russian-backed deal with the regime.

The evacuation is scheduled to deport about 25000 rebels and their families.

10,000 people left the central city of Homs to the northern provinces of Idlib and Aleppo in six weeks, according to Zaman al-Wasl reporter.

 Over the past year, the regime has accelerated its drive to push rebel-held pockets to surrender under evacuation deals similar to the one in force in Homs.
