BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing to launch their northern Homs offensive, following the refusal of some militant groups to leave the area.

Recently, an agreement was struck up that would see the Islamist rebels and their families evacuated from northern Homs; however, similar to the eastern Qalamoun, several militants have refused to leave, despite the government’s threats to attack.

The only rebels that agreed to leave northern Homs are ones from the towns of Talbiseh and Al-Rastan – the remaining militants have refused.

According to a military source in Damascus, the rebels inside the towns of Al-Ghanto, Deir Fool, and ‘Ayn Hussein have all refused terms.

In response to the militants refusing to leave, the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces have deployed around this large pocket that stretches from northern Homs and southern Hama.

Once the Al-Rastan and Talbiseh militants are evacuated, the Syrian military will begin their long-awaited offensive to retake this important area.
