Sporadic clashes between fighters of the Syrian Army’s 4th Armoured Division and former members of militant groups continue in the Syrian province of Daraa.
The violence in the province started on January , when government forces launched an attack against former rebels in the western Daraa countryside. The fighting erupted near the towns of Muzayrib, al-Yadudah and Tafas.
According to local sources, the source of tensions is the support of former rebels to a number of radical militants that have rejected the reconciliation process. At the same time, pro-opposition sources argue that the core of the problem is the ‘violent’ posture of army units that allegedly burned several hours.
