On July 1, Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters in the town of Bosra al-Sham in the eastern Daraa countryside began handing over their weapons and military equipment to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria.

This step is reportedly a part of a reconciliation agreement, which was reached only few hours ago in the town. A day earlier, Russian officials and commanders of the FSA failed to reach an agreement during a meeting in Bosra al-Sham.
A new meeting is currently being held in the southern town, according to Syrian opposition sources. The Daraa Revolutionary Civilian Council commented on these new developments in an official statement, in which it said that any agreement in southern Syria should be approved by the political and military wings of the opposition there.
After the failure of several previous meetings in Bosra al-Sham and in Jordan, this new agreement may open the road again for a peaceful agreement in the southern governorates of Daraa and al-Quneitra. Such an agreement may be only hours away, according to local observers.
