BEIRUT - Buses carrying Syrian rebel fighters and their families safely reached the northwestern city of Idlib overnight after withdrawing from Homs under a local ceasefire agreement, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Thursday.

The United Nations presided over the deal, which the mayor of Homs said involved 300 fighters and 400 members of their families leaving Waer, the last rebel-held area of the city that has been a center of the uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The Observatory said about 750 people had left, including fighters from the al Qaida-linked Nusra Front.
