BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:25 P.M.) – Moments ago, warring parties reached a verbal agreement over the Al-Waer district that would have rebel forces leave for Idlib and the northwestern Homs suburb completely restored under Syrian Arab Army (SAA) control.

A new round of Al-Waer negotiations began on Wednesday and have now come to an end although the deal will formally be signed tomorrow, a military source told Al-Masdar News.

The agreement was brokered by a Russian delegation.

The source added that local Islamist factions wish to have their forces evacuated in batches while the SAA prefers to have them all depart at once; this represents the last point of dispute but is expected to be resolved shortly.

Last September, 300 jihadist insurgents where evacuated from Al-Waer while the rest refused to leave.

Sporadic clashes have engulfed the Al-Waer neighborhood ever since 2014 when rebel forces in the provincial capital of Homs capitulated to the SAA.
