The plan to evacuate hundreds of rebels from the insurgent-held Al Waer district in Homs has been hindered and eventually postponed as the UN delegation failed to attend.

According to sources, a special UN delegation was supposed to escort the government busses transporting the surrendered militants to Idlib Governorate, where those chose to be dislocated.

However, the delegation gave up the idea, saying the rout to the Nusra-held province “is unsafe”, thus impeding the evacuation plan.

Some 200-300 militants, accompanied with their families, were set to leave the last rebel-held district in central Homs.

Today’s plan is part of a UN-brokered deal between the Syrian government and armed opposition to evacuate some 1000 people (militants and their families) from the besieged district of Al Waer.

A Syrian activist and reporter for the leading radio station Sham FM said that the UN has pressed on the militants to impede the deal, describing it as “forced displacement” .

UN cries about sieges, cries about ending sieges (“forced displacements”). What do they want? Give territories to al-Nusra?
