97 Armed-Men Surrender to Syrian Authorities in Homs
More than 97 ‘militants’, formerly operating in Homs province, laid down their arms on Wednesday and turned themselves in to the Syrian officials as the pro-government forces keep on advancing across the Central province.
The militants formerly fighting in the Homs province’s ar-Rastan, Talbiseh, and in the city of Homs surrendered to the Syrian government as the forces loyal to the Syrian President Bashar Assad continue gaining ground across the country.
Reports said earlier that the Syrian Air Force dropped a series of leaflets over the militant-held part of Homs province and several other regions across Syria, giving the Takfiri terrorists another chance to lay down arms.
As the Syrian government forces are advancing against the militant groups in different parts of Homs province, the country’s air fleet began dropping the leaflets, the practice that the government follows in parallel with hitting the militants.
Reports said also that the Syrian army continued to advance against the Terrorist groups, mainly the ISIL and al-Nusra Front, and seized back more lands in the Eastern parts of the province.
Meantime, the Syrian and Russian strikers intensified their joint air raids on ISIL positions across the key city of Palmyra and its suburbs, and took a heavy toll from the terrorist group on Wednesday.
Until last year, most surrendering cases happened in Homs and Damascus provinces, but now a growing number of militants lay down arms across the country. As the army scores more wins across Syria more militants lay down arms to save their lives.
Around 250 militants in the Southern province of Dara’a laid down their arms and turned themselves in to the Syrian officials on February 29.
The 250 surrendered militants were mostly from al-Sanamein region, including 130 from the village of Kefr Shams.
Earlier the same month, at least 59 militants in two provinces of Damascus and Idlib turned themselves in to the Syrian authorities.
Also, 27 Takfiri militants laid down arms and turned themselves in to the Syrian army in Homs, Hama and Idlib provinces in February.
Reports said also in late December that some 157 wanted militants in Damascus turned themselves in to the Syrian authorities. Some 117 wanted persons from Homs surrendered to be pardoned also the same month.
Meanwhile, 40 wanted militants from the provinces of Damascus and Hama also turned themselves in to the authorities against in December.
Another 116 Takfiri militants turned themselves in to the Syrian army in Homs province on December 20.
On December 12, some 20 wanted Takfiri terrorists in Hama province gave up fight and turned themselves in to the authorities to enjoy the general amnesty issued by President Bashar Al-Assad that has been in place for the last several years.
Some 200 wanted militants from Zabadani region and Madaya in Damascus province also surrendered on December 5.
“The Syrian government has vowed to pardon all those who lay down arms voluntarily and it has remained loyal to its pledge so far, and this has encouraged us to give up fight, specially considering that the government troops, National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah who also enjoy the air backup of the Syrian and Russian air forces has gained momentum in its battlefield victories,” one of those who surrendered in Damascus on December 5 said.
President Bashar Assad’s government freed 270 militants within the framework of the country’s reconciliation plan on December 11.
