Syrian government forces enter more towns in Daraa

DARAA, Syria (North Press) –    On Tuesday, the Syrian government forces entered the town of Tsil in the Yarmouk Basin area in the western countryside of Daraa, accompanied by the Russian Military Police, the Central Committee and the town’s notables.

The security apparatus of the government forces established a center to settle the cases of some wanted by the government in the municipality building of the town, which the Syrian Air Force Intelligence used as a headquarters before their withdrawal from the town, a local source told North Press.

The flags of Russia and the Syrian government were raised on the municipality building in conjunction with the settlement of the cases of some wanted by the government and the handover of a number of light weapons, according to the same source.

The government forces accompanied by the Russian Military Police and the Central Committee will search several houses in the town following the settlement.

The entry of the government forces into Tsil town came in implementation of the agreement concluded between the government forces, the Central Committee and the region’s notables brokered by Russia, to make a settlement in a number of towns and villages in the western countryside of Daraa.

On Monday, the security apparatus of the government forces finished the settlement of cases of the wanted in the town of al-Shajara and the villages affiliated to it.

On September 25, the government forces entered the town of Sahem Golan on the Jordanian border.

This coincided with the deployment of Syrian government forces in the villages of Heit, Jellin and al-Muzayra’a in the Yarmouk Basin in the western countryside of Daraa.

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

Daraa was subjected to a suffocating siege imposed by pro-Iranian factions and the government forces for more than two months. Finally, an agreement was reached between the parties to the conflict under Russian auspices on a ceasefire and the entry of government forces into the besieged neighborhoods.
