Dara’a, Syria – Over 600 people including 280 armed rebels turned themselves in to the Syrian authorities making use of the government’s amnesty offer in Dara’a province.
The reconciliation took place in the town of Ghabaghib as most of the reconcilers are displaced residents of the town. This settlement comes at a time when an increasing number of towns are negotiating with the government regarding reconciliation.
A source revealed that such a process may include the entire Dara’a region including the provincial capital. Noticeably, Syria’s southern fronts have been dormant for most of the past year only occasionally interrupted by a failed rebel offensive targeting the abandoned base near Ibta’.
