Still from the video below

Al Masdar News reports:

Moments ago inside the provincial capital of the Homs Governorate, 14 buses provided by the Syrian government reportedly arrived at the Al-Wa’er District to transport the remaining Islamist rebels from this city to the provincial capital of the Idlib Governorate.

In addition to the arrival of the 14 buses, several aid workers from the United Nations arrived in the Al-Wa’er Districr to treat the wounded Islamist rebels and civilians as part of the ceasefire agreement that was put in place last week.

The Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” will be transported to the Idlib Governorate in two phases; today marked the first phase of the ceasefire agreement.

    These people have been evacuated instead of being killed or imprisoned simply because Assad is not a brute or a murderer, something that of course the ‘West’ will studiously ignore. Personally I think it is a mistake….But anyway they will be destroyed by the russians a little further down the line, so bye-bye.

    They are all no doubt en route to Turkey, in order to enter the EU and Germany as “refugees”.
    They will provide the necessary expertise for a further attack on a major European city.
    Ah, the “wisdom” of our political “masters” is truly stunning sometimes, don’t you think?
    Why have home-grown terrorists when you can import all you like from Syria.
    It must be a whole lot cheaper for them, don’t you think?
