Syria evacuations resume days after bombing: State media, war monitor

Beirut: Evacuations from four besieged areas of Syria resumed on Wednesday, Syrian state television, a Hezbollah media unit and a war monitor reported, days after a suicide bombing killed dozens in a convoy which was part of the same reciprocal agreement. 

Some 45 buses carrying 3,000 people left the rebel-besieged Shi`ite villages of al-Foua and Kefraya near Idlib for government-controlled Aleppo, while a convoy of 11 buses left army-besieged al-Zabadani, the Hezbollah media unit said. 

On Saturday, a bomb attack on a convoy of evacuees from al-Foua and Kefraya killed 126 people, including more than 60 children, the war monitor, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, reported. 

Under the deal, civilians and pro-government fighters from the Shi`ite villages were travelling by bus to government-controlled Aleppo, while insurgents and their families from al-Zabadani and Madaya near Damascus crossed to rebel-held territory, having first gone to Aleppo. 

Three buses on Wednesday also carried wounded people from Saturday`s convoy attack, as well as the remains of those who had died, the Hezbollah military media unit reported.
