More and more Syrian militants are laying down their arms and returning to normal life.

More than 240 opposition fighters surrendered to the authorities in the city of Hama on April 20, bringing the total number of those who ceased armed resistance in the past several days to more than 770.

Meanwhile, clashes between government and opposition forces reportedly continue in Aleppo, Homs, Mayadin and Abu Kamal. Militants derailed a grain train in the Idlib province near the border with Turkey.
