BEIRUT (Sputnik) – Earlier this week, it was reported that a temporary ceasefire in the Syrian towns of Fua and Kefraya was set until Saturday.
"The evacuation has begun only in Fua so far. The column with a small number of citizens headed to Hama, accompanied by cars of the Red Cross and Red Crescent. There they will be met by representatives of Hezbollah," the source stated.
The source added, the first column is a "trial" one. If people reach the destination without any problems, the first group of terrorists will be released from the encirclement in the town of Zabadani, a Damascus suburb.
Twice, in late August and in early September, a ceasefire was declared to halt fighting between the Syrian militants and the army in Zabadani near the Lebanese border. However, the truce was violated by the terrorists.
Syria has been in the state of civil war since the 2011 political collapse. Government forces have been fighting on multiple fronts against opposition forces and numerous extremist militant groups, including Islamic State and the Nusra Front.
