Lebanon's Shiite movement Hezbollah, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, confirmed Friday that a six-month truce had been reached for the rebel-held town of Zabadani and two Shiite towns in the northwest.

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah told the movement's Al-Manar television channel the deal was reached under United Nations auspices and reached through the mediation of Damascus ally Iran.

It will entail the "evacuation of armed and wounded men from Zabadani (between Damascus and the Lebanese border) to Idlib province (in the north) in exchange for the evacuation of 10,000 civilians from the villages of Fuaa and Kafraya to zones controlled by the regime," he said.
