On February 11, several units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) entered the town of Tafas in the western countryside of Daraa.

The deployment was carried out in accordance with the reconciliation agreement which was reached earlier this week. Under the agreement, former rebels in western Daraa submitted to the demands of Damascus.

The former rebels expelled six troublemakers to the northwestern region of Greater Idlib and began handing over their remaining heavy weapons to the SAA.

The Syrian Arab News Agency said the SAA deployment in Tafas, the stronghold of former rebels in western Daraa, is meant to secure the town and promote stability.

“SAA units are being deployed in the town of Tafas and establishing checkpoints in the town to extend security and stability there in preparation for the return of all state institutions to their work,” the agency’s report said. “During the past few days, army units carried out combing operations around the town and dismantling improvised devices in preparation for the return of the locals to their homes and farmlands.”

The reconciliation agreement in western Daraa was brokered by the Russian Military Police, which have been active in southern Syria since mid-2018.

While the agreement resolves the conflict between government forces and former rebels, it doesn’t address the threat posed by terrorist cells in the region. A better coordination between the region’s leaders and Damascus is needed to contain this growing threat.

At the end where the local militia are telling the motorbikes to pull over there are a few m/c but at the start there are lots of people watching . Was that the first vehicle or a late comer..

You often cant rely on pictures as You try. They often are delayed and dont show the rest.

You can have 10 tanks behind the fotographer.

In time pictures are not used anymore. The enemy has internet too and by that You right away fx is an artillery target.

Fog of War

Welcome to the clown show.

Its like old DDR. If there was transportations and no walls and militaries, Eric Honnecker would have been the only inhabitant there.

So far only one of three socalled Syrians are not in Syria.

I have no % in this. o me its about 20% less actie opposition there – maybee 30%.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

Someone’s lying, this article claims the 6 wanted men were repatriated to north Idlib but all the opposition sites tell another story, they all say the wanted men are not being handed over at all, just moving out of Tafas and relocating to other parts of Darra.
The wanted men and their associated militia were relocated to Tafas in March last year as part of a Russian brokered agreement, and now they’re moving out again according to the new Russian agreement, so I wonder where the militia is locating to, the opposition sites aren’t saying where they’re moving to just when they are [Thursday], which makes me a little suspicious they might be the one’s lying, but only time will tell.
