BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – A large group of rebels int the Wadi Barada area surrendered to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on Wednesday after a temporary agreement was put in place between the government and opposition.

Russia Today’s (RT) Lizzie Phelan reported on Wednesday that at least 300 rebel fighters surrendered to the Syrian Arab Army inside the town of Deir Qannoun, as they see no reason to continue their fight.

Clashes are reportedly still taking place inside the Wadi Barada area, despite claims by the Damascus Governor of a ceasefire being implemented.

Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) claimed that 50 militants have surrendered and over 600 people have managed to reach the Syrian Army’s front-lines for safety – no confirmation from ground sources.

As far as the reported ceasefire, it appears to be holding among the non-jihadist rebels and Syrian Army; however, groups like Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham have not agreed to terms.
