BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has reportedly entered another town in the eastern countryside of the Dara’a Governorate today.
According to a field reporter in Daraa, the Syrian military has entered the town of Al-Karak after locals expressed their desire to reconcile with the government.
Initially, reports from Al-Karak claimed that the rebels were clashing with the Syrian Arab Army; however, a source told Al-Masdar that no clashes took place, as all rebels unwilling to reconcile left.
Al-Karak is located south of the recently captured town of Al-Hirak and it was considered a long-time rebel stronghold.
Furthermore, some preliminary reports near Al-Karak indicated that the rebels had agreed to surrender Nassib, Sayda, and several other towns in southwest Daraa.
A source denied that any agreement has been made in southeast Daraa, adding that reconciliation talks are taking place across the province, but nothing has been confirmed other than a few towns in east Daraa and three villages north of the provincial capital.
