BEIRUT, February 09, 21:46 /ITAR-TASS/. As many as 611 civilians have been evacuated from the opposition-controlled old town quarters in Homs, the SNA news agency quoted Homs Governor Talal al-Barrazi as saying on Sunday.
According to al-Barrazi, the ceasefire agreement may be extended for three days more to give local residents an opportunity to leave dangerous areas.
“The issue is being discussed by the parties,” he said.
According to earlier reports, a total of 190 tonnes of humanitarian cargoes, including foodstuffs and medicines, were delivered to the old town quarters. Only a convoy of trucks under United Nations flags managed to reach the town, while trucks of the Syrian Red Crescent were not let in by the armed opposition. The Al-Mayadeen television channel said gunfire had been opened at trucks taking the civilians out of Homs. No one was hurt.
