BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 A.M.) – Syrian government forces continued their advance near Tafas in the southern Syrian province of Daraa, after rebel groups rejected surrender conditions, footage filmed on Sunday shows.
The negotiations failed after the Russian Reconciliation Center offered another set of terms to the rebel forces that would pave the way for reconciliation and the surrender of the areas controlled by the jihadist rebels.
The rebels rejected the offer and vowed to continue their fight against the Syrian government forces, despite increased pressure from Jordan and Russia.
This latest rejection marks the second time in seven days that the rebel forces have walked away from the negotiations table.
Soldiers and military vehicles can be seen conducting operations in the countryside in Daraa.
The fighting is part of a week-long offensive in the area.
