The Russian Peace Coordination Center in Syria announced on Monday that militant groups in five more towns in two provinces have ended fight against the Syrian government and joined the nationwide reconciliation plan.
The Russian center said in a statement that representative of three towns in Hama and two towns in Lattakia signed peace agreement with the government and joined the peace process; FNA reported.
"With these towns, the total number of the cities, towns and villages that have thus far accepted the peace agreement with Damascus reached 961," the center added.
Reports said earlier today that the Syrian government gave amnesty to 103 gunmen from two towns in Northern Homs and several neighborhoods in Homs city.
Based on Decree No. 15 of 2016 National Amnesty, the relevant authorities pardoned 103 wanted people from the towns of al-Rastan and Talbiseh and Homs neighborhoods who had earlier turned themselves in and handed over their weapons.
The pardoned ex-militants vowed officially not to do anything wrong against Syria again.
