    “The process of withdrawing the fourth group of militants and some members of their families, denying the ceasefire agreement is continuing till the full liberation of Al-Waer from weapons and militants and returning governmental services there,” the press service of Homs said.

In accordance with the agreement, militants and their families agreed to leave Homs stage by stage, while Syrian government troops guaranteed safe passage for them. Almost 1,500 militants have already left the city.
