On Tuesday, military groups of the government forces entered al-Shajara town to search a number of houses. Later today, these forces will enter the village of al-Qusayr on the border strip with Jordan, residents of the town said.

On Monday, websites loyal to al-Ghaith Forces published photos of Brigadier General Ghayath Dala, the commander of the al-Ghaith Forces, in the village of al-Shubraq, less than 4 kilometers from the border strip with Israel.

The deployment of the government forces comes after the settlement of the status of some individuals wanted by the government’s security apparatus in al-Shajara town over the past two days, after an agreement between the government forces and the region’s notables under Russian auspices.

On Sunday, government forces entered al-Shajara and established a center to settle the cases of some residents in a secondary school. The flag of Russia and the Syrian government were raised above the high school.

These steps come as a continuation of the agreement held in early September between the Central Committee and the government forces brokered by Russia.

Al-Shajara is a strategic town located on the triangle between Syria, Jordan and Israel, where it is about 7 kilometers from the Israeli border and only 6 kilometers from the Jordanian one.
