30 towns and villages join national reconciliation program in Hama of Syria

On Thursday, the head of the Russian mediation center in Syria, German Rudenko, said that more than 30 towns and villages have joined the national reconciliation process in the Syrian province of Hama.

He also said that representatives of local communities had signed a deal banning use of weapons against government forces and returning state power to the region.

“The work is very meticulous and delicate; everything here is based on religious and national matters, but overall about 30 communities have signed an application form to join the peace process and negotiations,” Rudenko said.

It was reported on February 29 that up to 1,000 militants promised to drop their weapons and join the peace process in a gathering held in the capital of Dara’a Governorate since the Syrian government pushed for a settlement to solve the crisis in Syria.

According to the government program, gunmen will be allowed to get back to their normal lives if they promise to surrender their weapons and accept government investigation.

Since February 27, Syria has been observing a truce brokered by Russia and the US.  Yesterday, the UN special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said the truce “greatly reduced” violence, despite some trivial violations in some cities.
