Kubechichin reiterated that temporary centers have been set up in Homs, Hama and Deir Ezzur provinces to pave the way for exit of civilians from that region.
Meantime, the Syrian Army has also established safe human corridors in Abu al-Dhohour in Southeastern Idlib and Souran in Northern Hama over the past month and concurrent with the Syrian Army’s military operations in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib.

The sources said that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wants to return to the de-escalation zone agreement with Russia through talks (after non-commitment) to it and following Moscow’s repeated opposition to Ankara’s demands for a ceasefire in Idlib and the adjacent areas.
