After almost 3 years of relentless fighting, militias loyal to the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have agreed to a complete ceasefire in the strategic city of Al-Wa’er in the Homs Governorate. The ceasefire is effective immediately and it requires both groups to end all hostilities towards one another, as reconciliation groups’ work to repair relations at this volatile area in the province of Homs.

Meanwhile in northern Homs, the SAA Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) and National Defense Forces (NDF) are continuing their offensive that is targeting the Al-Qaeda linked “Al-Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra) in the villages of Al-Qasr and Rahoum. Earlier today, contingents from the SAA and NDF destroyed an Al-Nusra Front command-and-control base in the village of Al-Qasr, killing 19 militants and seizing a number of supplies and documents.

At the village of Sa’an Assoud, the SAA and NDF carried out a number of raids in this area that resulted in the death of a dozen armed militants belonging to the Al-Nusra Front. Among the dead were 3 foreigners that possessed Lebanese documents: Fouad Ahmad Al-‘Ajami, Mou’az ‘Abdel-Rahman Al-Kana’an, and Jawad ‘Iyad Jawad.
