Civilians and fighters began Friday morning evacuating four towns besieged by rebels and government forces under a deal brokered by Qatar and Iran, an AFP correspondent and local source told AFP.
An AFP correspondent in rebel-held Rashidin, west of Aleppo city, said at least 80 buses arrived in the region from government-held Fuaa and Kafraya in Idlib province . A rebel source in Idlib told AFP "the implementation of the deal started in the morning".
The Syrian Observatory for Human rights confirmed the beginning of the evacuation.
