BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – The Syrian government rejected the amnesty cases of nearly 500 rebels from the northern countryside of the Homs Governorate, a military report stated on Tuesday.
According to the military report, the amnesty cases were rejected for a number of reasons, including crimes committed by that particular rebel against the Syrian people.
The majority of the rebels that were rejected were reportedly from the towns of Talbiseh, Al-Rastan, and Al-Houla.
Instead of arresting the rebels, the government agreed to transport these militants to the Idlib Governorate, where they will rejoin their comrades.
These rejections comes one week after the Syrian Army announced full control over the northern Homs pocket, following the departure of the rebels from this region.
