DARAA, Syria (North Press) – On Monday evening, an informed source in the city of Daraa, southern Syria, said that the implementation of the terms of the agreement between the notables and the government security committee under the auspices of the Russian forces went today as planned without any violations.

On Sunday evening, a number of Daraa’s notables and government forces, in the presence of a number of Russian officers, reached a ceasefire agreement, with a deadline until ten o’clock this morning to hand over weapons and start implementing the terms of the agreement.

“The situation of a number of residents was settled, and a number of light weapons, a 60-caliber mortar and 12.5 DShK machine gun were handed over,” a source close to the Central Committee said.   

One of the notables of Daraa al-Balad told North Press that some of the terms of the agreement will be completed tomorrow, on Tuesday, with the deployment of military checkpoints in Daraa al-Balad, Tariq al-Sadd neighborhood and the camps.

He added that the rest of the terms of the agreement are also supposed to be implemented, “including the withdrawal of the Iranian-backed factions that have besieged Daraa al-Balad and the neighborhoods that have been besieged for 77 days.”
