Syrian Rebels Abandon Homs

It might be all over but the bloody retributions:

Syrian rebel fighters began withdrawing from the old city of Homs, under a cease-fire that will leave President Bashar al-Assad’s army in control of one of the bastions of the three-year uprising against him.

Two buses are carrying more than 200 rebel fighters, including some from Islamist groups, away from the besieged neighborhoods of Homs, in central Syria, and toward the town of Al-Dar Al-Kabira to its north, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on its Facebook page.

When they get there, rebel fighters will release prisoners and hostages from the towns of Nubbul and al-Zahraa in Aleppo province, and humanitarian aid will be permitted to enter those mostly Shiite and pro-Assad towns, the U.K.-based observatory said. The cease-fire was negotiated last week at meetings attended by United Nations representatives.

Does this mean we’ll be getting those chemical weapons soon?
