Buses carrying 450 evacuees from besieged areas in Syria cross to Turkey, Lebanon
Buses and ambulances carrying around 450 fighters and civilians evacuated from two besieged areas in Syria have crossed into Turkey and Lebanon, sources at the border crossings said. Under a U.N.-sponsored deal agreed by warring parties, more than 125 fighters from the besieged rebel-held town of Zabadani near the border with Lebanon are en route to Beirut airport to board a plane to Turkey. Simultaneously, around 330 civilians and injured fighters trapped in two pro-government Shi’ite villages in northwest Syria are heading to the Turkish city of Hatay to take a plane to Beirut, aid workers said.
