Helicopters belonging to the Syrian regime threw leaflets calling upon civilians in rural areas of northern Homs and South of Hama to leave the positions of the armed militia.

This step indicates the approach of a military operation by the regime in the northern Homs and South of Hama.

Armed factions control the towns located in the countryside of Homs and Hama, including Nusra Front previously.

The Syrian regime intensified, for the fourth consecutive day, its military campaign on Yarmouk camp, Al Hajar Al Aswad and the neighborhoods of southern Damascus to impose an evacuation agreement reached with the fighters of ISIS and Nusra Front.

According to identical sources, some 6,000 Palestinian civilians were trapped in the Yarmouk camp because of the clashes.

This comes as a diplomat revealed to Asharq al-Awsat newspaper that the ambassadors of the members of the UN Security Council ended their meeting in Sweden on the Syrian crisis and agreed to intensify efforts and overcome differences to reach a solution to the crisis.
