A new batch of opposition fighters and their families left on Monday al-Waer neighborhood in Homs, west of Syria, as Assad regime continues implementing the policy of forced displacement on liberated areas across Syria.

The second batch of al-Waer’s forcibly displaced residents left early in the morning heading to Jarablus city in northern Syria, Juday Arish, Orient News correspondent, said.

“Around 1850 people, including opposition fighters in the neighborhood and their families, boarded 30 buses and headed toward the ‘bakery checkpoint’ [an Assad regime checkpoint],” Juday said.

“The Jarablus-bound bus convoy will pass then through Salamiya then Khanaser, al-Safira, Tadef, and al-Bab to reach its final destination,” she added.

Orient News correspondent explained that the forcibly displaced civilians are about 370 families and include around 300 opposition fighters. People with disabilities, chronic disease, and paralysis are among those who left, she further said.

A third batch is due to be displaced from al-Waer, but will be heading to Idlib.

On March 18, the displacement of residents in Homs’ al-Waer began, where 40 buses with at least 2000 people on board left the neighborhood after a deal, brokered by Russia, was struck with Assad regime.
