Rastan Pocket Militants Reject Evacuation Deal, Shell Homs City

On May 2, several armed groups in the Rastan pocket in northern Homs rejected the evacuation agreement which had been reached after a long negotiation between Russia and the Free Syrian Army (FSA), according to Syrian oppositions sources.

In an attempt to sabotage the agreement, the militants shelled the civilian district of Wadi al-Dahab in the city of Homs with more than six Grad rockets. Syrian pro-government sources claimed that several civilians had been injured in the shelling.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Russian Aerospace Forces have not respond to the rocket attack yet. According to local observers, Russia and the Damascus government will likely give the FSA a second chance to respect and to implement the agreement before responding to the attack.

The evacuation agreement that was reached earlier should allow all the militants who don’t want to reconcile with the Damascus government to withdraw towards the Idlib governorate or the Turkish-held city of Jarabulus. The militants will also surrender all of their weapons under the agreement that will be overseed by the Russian Military Police.

If the FSA does not implement the evacuation agreement, a large-scale military operation led by the elite Tiger Force and backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces will begin, according to Syrian pro-government activists.

Promitheas Apollonious

Giving second chances sometimes to scum, backfires against you.

Manuel Flores Escobar

another fake chemical attack in 3, 2, 1…..

Icarus Tanović

Good one.

Rafik Chauhan

it wont happen bcuz Russian airforce will be leading the attack mostly. Zionist doesn’t have guts to blame Russia for this


I said this would happen. Headchoppers will always come up with a last minute excuse to ruin things for everyone. Including themselves. Now the Tigers need to go in to give them a spanking and maybe in a day or two we will see the first green busses arrive.

Who do these people take their orders from? (It’s a rhetorical question.)

Another option is to work with the reasonable elements to remove the malignant rebels.

Rex drabble

They have been doing so for months.These fools want to die.Then kill them!

achiles Greeko

ur reasonable elements who work for “Mossad”, don`t wish peace in Middleast

Your comment makes no sense at all. My comment is essentially the sense of the Russian strategy, which is to use the differences between various rebels groups to cause the collapse of the so-called rebel lines. Thanks for wasting electricity.

Give them the taste of the Tigers and the RuAF! Let them perish!

John Mason

Stop playing silly games, give them 1 hour to lay down weapons and come out with hands in the air, otherwise Syrian forces will attack and take no prisoners. Enough of the BS.

I, like everyone else would love to hear about theses rats being exterminated. Thank whatever god you want that none of us have executive power though, the good guys are winning precisely because they are the good guys. Being provoked by provocations is a win for the enemy.


yep, this is going to be a slaughter! Its mostly open field and is also very close to the Russian air base and the Syrian MAIN Airbase! Plus Tiger forces!
They have T-90 tanks, much more men to fight since other fronts are closed!
I think when the terrorists ask for talks its only to stall for more time!
They had their chance!

achiles Greeko

AnkArA must be attacked and destroyed in order to reach peace in Syria

Tudor Miron

Their choice.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
