BEIRUT: More than 50 people were evacuated Monday from army-besieged districts of Syria's Homs in the fourth day of a humanitarian operation, activists said.
"More than 50 people have left the besieged neighbourhoods of Homs, on board one bus," said Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Monday's evacuation comes after some 700 people were given safe passage out of the besieged districts since a UN-brokered truce was put in place Friday.
The operation has been aimed at getting civilians trapped in the Old City area to safety while bringing much-needed aid for those who choose to stay.
The truce has however veen violated several times, with an aid convoy targeted on Saturday.
Shelling has killed 14 people in the besieged districts since Friday, according to the Observatory, a Britain-based group relying on activists and other sources inside Syria.
The regime and rebels have swapped accusations over the violations, which the UN has condemned.
