But hopes that tens of thousands of people will be evacuated have been halted following reports that the deal has currently been suspended due to 'obstructions'.

The Guardian has reported that the evacuation deal was suspended due to al-Qaida linked fighters in Idlib, the destination of many evacuees, refusing to allow the simultaneous evacuation of the wounded in two pro-government villages.
