BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham have surrendered the three villages of Beit Saber, Bitima, and Kafr Hawr near the border of the Golan Heights and West Ghouta after a series of meetings with the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command this week.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command was able to secure a reconciliation agreement from the rebel groups on Friday afternoon, ending the violent four year long battle for these villages in western Damascus.
Per the ceasefire agreement, the rebels have two options inside these three reconciled villages: turn in their weapons to the Syrian Arab Army and apply for amnesty or accept immediate transportation to the Idlib Governorate’s southern border with their small arms.
Despite the good news regarding these three villages, the militants in the large nearby town of Beit Jinn turned down the Syrian government’s reconciliation deal.
The Syrian Arab Army has given the rebels in Beit Jinn until Sunday to reconsider this deal; if they refuse again, they will storm the town.
