BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and militant forces in northern Homs have accepted the terms for a de-escalation zone over the Al-Rastan Plain, the high command of the military reported from Damascus today.

According to the Syrian military, the Al-Rastan Plain will be under the de-escalation agreement; this will include the towns of Al-Rastan, Kafr Laha, Umm Sharshouh, and Talduh.

As long as all parties adhere to the de-escalation agreement, then the imperative Homs-Hama Highway (M-5 Highway) will be reopened for commerce in central Syria.

The Russian military police will deploy to this region in northern Homs to make sure all parties adhere to the agreement and to protect the highway from any potential threats.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
