On Tuesday, the second convoy of internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Northern Homs and Southern Hama in Central Syria left for Northern Syria. The evacuation is part of an agreement between a local civil and military opposition committee from Northern Homs and Southern Hama on one side, and the Syrian government forces and a Russian delegation on the other side.

On Tuesday, Turkey allowed the first convoy of IDPs from Northern Homs to enter the city of al-Bab, 38 kilometers east of Aleppo, Northern Syria.

Earlier, IDPs from Northern Homs appealed to Turkey to speed up the entering of the first group, which is trapped at the Abu al-Zindin checkpoint in areas controlled by the Syrian government forces.

On Tuesday, dozens of people and activists in the city of al-Bab organized a protest in condemnation of Turkey’s prevention of the first convoy of IDPs from Northern Homs from entering  the area.

Earlier, Turkey prevented IDP convoys from Eastern Ghouta from entering areas controlled by the Euphrates Shield Operation factions under the pretext of lack of coordination. Popular protests forced Turkey to let the Eastern Ghouta IDP convoys enter.

On Tuesday, the fifth group of IDPs from the towns of Babila, Yalda, and Beit Sahem in Southern Damascus entered areas controlled by the factions of the Euphrates Shield Operation in Northern Aleppo. The group had to wait for hours for permission to enter.

Infighting renewed between the Liwaa Suqour al-Jabal and al-Sultan Murad Division of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in the area of Hawar Kilis in Northern Aleppo, Northern Syria. The infighting started again after hours of no fighting.

On Tuesday, rainstorms flooded dozens of IDPs’ tents in camps north and east of Aleppo in Northern Syria.

Local activists reported that heavy rain caused the water level to rise half a meter in the camps of Sajo, Doyouf al-Sharqia, and Yazbag in the cities of Azaz and al-Bab in Aleppo. The activists noted that service offices, the Civil Defense, and camp managements worked to direct the rainwater away from the camps.

On Tuesday, Russian and Syrian government bombings killed and injured eight civilians in two villages in Eastern and Southern Idlib, Northern Syria.

Two separate explosions killed and injured three civilians in Northern and Southern Idlib, Northern Syria.

On Tuesday, Turkish borders guards (known as “jandarma”) killed a civilian trying to cross the Turkish border illegally in Western Idlib, Northern Syria.

On the same day, dozens of demonstrators protested in the city of Maarrat al-Nu’man, 35 kilometers south of Idlib, Northern Syria, against the lack of public services in the city.

Heavy rain and floods drowned two children in the village of al-Tama, north of al-Hasakah in Northeastern Syria.

On Tuesday, the Syrian Human Rights Network said that Syrian government helicopters dropped 761 barrel bombs, including chemical toxins, on areas outside government control with the intent to displace civilians.

Political and international updates:

On Tuesday, Colonel Fatih Hasoun, the commander of the Country Liberation Movement, stated that an independent agreement was reached between the Jaysh al-Tawheed and Russia in Cairo, Egypt, contributing to removing Northern Homs from the de-escalation zone agreement reached in the Astana talks.

The Syrian Opposition National Coalition holds Iran responsible for the operations of coercive displacement and demographic change in Syria, adding that the Syrian government forces carry out the displacement operations under the auspices of Russia.

The United Nations stated that the military campaign in the Yarmouk camp for Palestinian refugees in Southern Damascus has displaced 7,000 people so far.
