Rebels begin evacuating Homs enclave of al-Wair

Syrian rebels and their families are leaving their last remaining enclave in Homs, a city once dubbed the capital of the revolution. Buses have begun transporting people out of al-Wair district, under a Russian-backed evacuation deal.
Al-Wair is home to an estimated 75,000 people and has been under siege by government forces since late 2013. Homs Governor said, about 1,500 people will leave for the Aleppo countryside. The opposition Homs Media Centre says up to 15,000 people could leave in the coming weeks.
The evacuation is part of a deal reached between community leaders and the government in December 2015. Hundreds of rebels have previously left al-Wair under its terms, but implementation of the agreement had stalled in recent months.
