On July 11, units of the Russian Military Police were deployed inside the town of Tafas in the western Daraa countryside under a reconciliation agreement, which was approved by the local Free Syrian army (FSA) fictions earlier, according to Syrian pro-government sources.

Over the last week, Tafas has witnessed heavy clashes between the FSA and the Syrian Arab Amy (SAA). Now this is over as local FSA fighters have agreed to hand over their weapons and join the reconciliation process. Those who oppose the agreement will likely be allowed to leave towards the opposition-held areas in northern Syria.
Meanwhile, the SAA resumed its military operations around Tafas and captured the hill of al-Ash`ari west of the town. This hill is one of the key points around the valley of al-Yarmouk, which is held by the ISIS-affiliated group, Khalid ibn al-Walid Army.
After capturing al-Ash’ari, warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) conducted a series of airstrikes on several positions of the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army in the village of Jillen, 3km northwest of the hell.
The upcoming hours may witness limited clashes between the ISIS-affiliated group and the SAA in the western Daraa countryside. However, the SAA and its allies will not likely launch a large scale military operation to eliminate the terrorist group before securing all FSA-held areas.
