Barzeh is located along the main Damascus/Homs highway near Qaboun and Jobar tand potenially blocks several important roads. That must be having serious effect or the regime would never agree to these terms:
1- FSA will stay in the places it taken and never withdraw.
2- SAA will withdraw from the places under his occupation and empty the military centers surrounded Barzeh .
3. Regime must release detainees .
4-The introduction of flour and fuel into the neighborhood and re all kinds of communications.
5. In return the FSA agrees to open the roads he once closed (Tishrin hospital road and the road linking Damascus and Tal).
As I read those terms this does not open the road to Homs which remains blocked near Adra and Qalamoun. The source for the above item and the two that follow is the FSA via this link:
