Homes in Homs

, May 10, 2014

Residents arrive on foot to inspect their homes in the Al-Hamdeya neighborhood, after the cessation of fighting between rebels and forces loyal to Syria's President Bashar Al-Assad, in Homs city on May 9. Around 270 Syrian rebels granted safe exit under a complex deal with President Bashar Al-Assad's forces are being held in Homs by the army after insurgents elsewhere failed to uphold their side of the agreement, Syrian officials said on Friday. Following a year of siege, around 1,200 rebels and residents in the Old City of Homs left the city on buses this week in exchange for the release of dozens of captives held by rebels in the northern provinces of Aleppo and Latakia.
