BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – Syrians were seen rejoicing in the streets of Dael in the north west of Daraa province, after a deal was reached for the town to come back under government control, footage filmed on Saturday shows.
Locals can be seen waving Syrian flags on the streets and chanting slogans in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The re-establishment of government control of Dael is part of a week-long offensive in the Daraa province.
Dael was reconciled on Friday after the rebels and residents of the town agreed to reconcile with the government.
In addition to Dael, the rebels also agreed to concede the towns of ‘Ibtaa and Tafas, which are located directly north of Daraa city.
