The previous batch of al-Waer neighborhood’s population left on Tuesday (April 18) heading to northern Syria, after a 24-hour delay by Assad terrorists at a checkpoint.

The forced displacement of al-Waer population started mid-March after the population was forced to negotiate a Russia-brokered deal with the Assad regime as the latter carpet-bombed al-Waer, killing and injuring dozens. Residents also suffered suffocating siege and miserable living conditions.
