Rare evacuation of Syria towns as deadly blasts hit Homs

A convoy of ambulances transporting wounded civilians and rebels from the villages of Fuaa and Kafraya, the last two regime-held villages in Idlib province, is guarded as it heads towards the Cilvegozu crossing with Turkey on December 28, 2015A rare UN-backed deal between Syria’s warring sides saw hundreds of fighters and civilians evacuate three towns on Monday, as bomb blasts in the regime-held city of Homs killed at least 19 people. President Bashar al-Assad’s regime has agreed to several ceasefires with rebel groups in the past but Monday’s evacuation plan was one of the most elaborate in the nearly five-year war.
