BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:27 A.M.) – A temporary ceasefire has been agreed upon between the Syrian Army and rebels in Daraa city that is to start on Saturday at 12:00 P.M. According to Al-Masdar News sources, the ceasefire will be implemented for 48 hours with the possibility of an extension if both the Syrian government and rebel leadership agree to it.

A meeting is yet to be held between Syrian Army mediators and rebel representatives to draw up a proper format for the ceasefire and its terms. So far what is known is that draft terms for the ceasefire call for an end to artillery shelling by both pro-government and militant factions and for an end to airstrikes carried out by pro-government warplanes; in addition to this, both sides are required to stop sending reinforcements towards Daraa city.

This development comes as the Jordan and Syrian governments have been in talks to reopen the Nasib border crossing directly south of Daraa city. With the realization of this bilateral proposition, Jordan could force rebels to retreat from the area south of Daraa city and/ or entice them to reconcile with the Syrian government.

  1. This rebels better leave all of daraa city and border with Jordan forever then only this ceasefire will be effective bcuz this rebels are slqaida terriost not moderate rebels and they are working for US and Saudi. So leave daraa completely if they want survive

  2. Jordan has helped create yet another US terror monster that now has the distinct possibility of turning its bile onto Jordan . The reality on the ground is destroying the US fantasy in Syria and Iraq and little Jordan will be trapped between the US terrorists they hosted who will feel betrayed and trade with Syria that Jordan needs.

    Jordan’s elite has sold their soul to Israel and the Zionist ruled US/UK.
    No self respecting Arab will forget this and why should they?

    • Jordans, like Lebanese and east Syrians, are Jews who were forced into Islam by Arab violent conquest.
      Syrians and Iraqis aren’t Arabs too. Syria was Christian and so was Egypt before being invaded by Mohamedan armies.
      Arabs are in Saudi-Barbaria, Qatar, etc…… All Middle-easters should shit and piss on Saudi-Barbaria! Their invasions then “cultural” domination have made the whole MENA a total shithole.
      It’s high time people of the region stick back to their real roots and get rid of Arab influence.
