DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:00 A.M.) – A ceasefire was declared yesterday between the Syrian government and rebel fighters in north Homs pocket only a short time after the country’s troops began a full offensive.

According to reports, the opposition factions called for a 24-hour ceasefire in order to engage in full negotiations with the Syrian government.

However, AMN has learnt that rebel groups have already agreed on to surrender their last enclave where the meeting intended to be held on Tuesday will discuss the detailed terms of their surrender.

Sources told AMN that rebel groups will ask Russia – the broker of negotiations – to allow the Russian military police and Syrian security forces into the their towns rather than the Syrian Army troops.

Militants belong to Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham and other jihadi groups who are unwilling to surrender will be evacuated to the province of Idlib.

Sounds suspicious. Why do the Russians and Syrians have to go to them, why not meet on the border?

Same deal as in Douma. IMHO. Russians are mediators. The mediators go – else the treaty negotiations are in the territory of the stronger party.

It’s been the case with all other surrenders as well. They likely met on the border already.
