DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:50 P.M.) – Hundreds of rebel fighters chose to turn themselves in to the Syrian government ahead of a prospective offensive on the insurgent-controlled enclave in north Homs countryside.

Up to 156 rebel fighters from Talbisah and Rastan towns in north Homs handed over their weapons as the government pledged to settle their status.

This comes a few hours before the Syrian Army is expected to launch a full-scale assault against opposition factions after talks for massive surrender failed.

According to sources, more militants are expected to turn themselves in ahead the onslaught as the majority of them seems unwilling to fight an already lost battle.

Glad that these Rebels understood the value of life and gave up fighting. It makes life easier for both the rebels & the Army. They can reconcile and settle down and have a decent life in Syria rather than get carried away by the disinformation being spread by war mongering nations which are funding & supporting them to fight against the Syrian Government.
