BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:58 A.M.) – Meetings are ongoing in militant-held Al-Waer district between a Russian and a Syrian government delegation, and an opposition delegation from the district.

According to a pro-opposition source from the district, the meeting lasted a mammoth six hours. This is the fourth of such meetings between the contending parties as they struggle to come to a final resolution on what is to be done with the last remaining militant-held area of Homs city.

The opposition source added that the Russian and Syrian government offered two options for the insurgents; either completely surrender the district and the Syrian Army enters it in same scenario as the east Aleppo districts, or a full scale operation to capture the district that would damage the district as a result of the fighting which would also kill more people, will ensue.

As a goodwill offer, the Syrian Army agreed that from Tuesday onward, they would stop shelling militant positions in the district until they have a made a decision on the two options offered.

Another meeting will take place on Thursday to see what the opposition have decided on what to do.

Irregardless of the decision made by the opposition, the Syrian Army will bring an end to the militants holding this district of Homs, whether it be through peaceful or violent means. If they agree to leave peacefully, it would most likely be under the same conditions that has seen thousands of militants leave other areas of Syria to go to Idlib province.

Let’s load up the green busses to Idlibstan! I never understood how Al Waer even stood for so long let alone why any civilian in any situation would live there – it’s nothing more than a few buildings and a park and one hospital (But the media will probably say there are 50 more hospitals LOL), how is it defensable and how and why are people still living there? It’s a 3 minute walk in any direction to the rest of Homs and contains nothing significant. Personally, I feel like it should be easy to retake it by force but… Read more »

Como siempre, estos mercenarios solo piden tiempo para volver atacar, el ejercito debe continuar con la ofensiva hasta que los terroristas pidan dejar el territorio sin condiciones.
