The countrywide ceasefire has surprisingly been successful as Syrian government officials report over 100 villages have now agreed to reconcile after several years of war and instability.
According to a source from the Syrian government, the majority of the reconciliation agreements have taken place in the Hama Governorate, where several groups recently settled their differences in exchange for peace.
The source added that several villages around Qal’at Al-Madeeq inside the Al-Ghaab Plains were among the recently reconciled in the Hama Governorate.
In the Damascus countryside, a Russian peace delegation is working to reconcile the rebel groups and the Syrian government forces in the Qudsiyah suborb after several failed attempts in the past between the two parties.
Conducting the mediation process is a Russian peace delegation that is working diligently to uphold all agreements and to oversee their implementation.
Since Jihadist groups are excluded from the countrywide ceasefire agreement, the Russian delegation has specifically focused on local rebel groups that do not have a criminal history.
