Terrorists in More Regions Join Peace Agreement with Syrian Army
The ministry said in a statement on Tuesday that representative of militants in the village of Sharshi in Hama and the village of Zita al-Bahr in Homs province endorsed peace agreement with the army, adding that the total number of towns, regions and villages that have thus far joined the nationwide peace plan stands at 2,357 now.
Dissident-affiliated websites reported last week that reconciliation talks were underway between Damascus and representatives of militant groups over affiliation of more regions in Eastern Qalamoun region to the nationwide peace plan.
The news websites reported that preliminary agreement was reached for the implementation of a peace plan in Eastern Qalamoun after the representatives of militants, the Syrian Army commanders and a sum of civilians met in the town of al-Rahibeh.
The websites said that the agreement was comprised of eight paragraphs, including exit of arms and military hardware from al-Rahibeh, demilitarization of the region, reviewing militants’ pardoning and return of state institutions to the region.
