Syrian civilians are now evacuating the besieged districts of Homs from the Old City according to a UN-sponsored agreement on a shaky ceasefire to allow for humanitarian aid to get in and let civilians out. Some of the civilians who left gave their testimony of what they experienced when living under the rule of the armed militants. „It is truly a jungle of monsters that we used to live in,” says a mother who was able to leave with her family. According to those civilians, the militants would take any food for themselves and not share it with the civilians, who were used as human shields.
