BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 P.M.) – The Russian military police have entered the town of Tafas in western Daraa after the rebels agreed to reconcile with the government.
According to a field report from the Daraa Governorate, the Russian military police entered the town of Tafas this afternoon in order to enforce the newly established reconciliation deal.
The Russian military police will now collect the medium and heavy weapons from the rebel forces inside of Tafas.
Tafas was originally under a reconciliation deal with the towns of Da’el and Ibtaa; however, the rebel forces refused to allow the Syrian or Russian forces to enter the town.
Following this disagreement, the Syrian Arab Army launched a powerful attack on Tafas that lasted for several days.
The rebels were ultimately forced to accept a reconciliation deal after the Syrian Army seized two of the hilltops overlooking Tafas this week.
