Two wounded rebel fighters evacuated from Syria under ceasefire deal – monitor

Two wounded rebel fighters were evacuated to Lebanon on Sunday from a Syrian town surrounded by pro-government forces, a monitoring organisation said, in the first sign that a local ceasefire agreement is being implemented. A U.N. vehicle transported the two fighters, as well as the father of one of them, from Zabadani to Lebanon, after an agreement with government forces and Damascus ally Hezbollah to grant safe passage, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The ceasefire deal, which is restricted to two areas in Syria, was reached with backing from Iran, Turkey and the United Nations.
