The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies entered into the towns of Rastan and Talbisah in the northern Homs pocket on May 16, the Hezbollah media wing in Syria reported.
According to the report, government forces were able to re-establish control of these towns following the withdrawal of militants from there in the framework of the previously reached agreement.
Earlier, the SAA entered about 30 villages in the eastern part of the pocket after militants had also withdrawn from there.
A western part of the pocket still remains in the hands of militants. However, this part of the pocket will also be taken by the SAA as soon as the militants’ withdrawal is finished.
