BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – A large number of rebels settled their legal status in southern Damascucs this weekend in order to return to civilian life, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.

SANA reporter said that committees from the competent authorities on Sunday settled the legal status of several former rebels from the town of Yalda after they turned themselves into the authorities.

As part of the deal, the rebels were supposed to hand over their weapons and pledge not to carry out any act that could harm the security inside the country.

The officer supervising the settlement process told SANA that settling the legal status of the gunmen who wanted to stay in their homes in Yalda, Babila and Beit Sahm is ongoing.

He pointed out that those who had their legal status settled handed over automatic rifles, RPG launchers, sniper rifles and various munitions to the authorities.
