BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has agreed to extend the deadline for the rebels to submit their answer regarding whether or not they will reconcile with the government in southern Syria.

Initially, the deadline was set for June 14th, but as Al-Masdar reported on Wednesday, the date would likely be pushed back as the Syrian Army negotiates with the Al-Quneitra town elders and community leaders.

While the Syrian Army is fully prepared to launch their Al-Quneitra offensive, they will attempt to secure a reconciliation agreement in order to avoid a long operation against the rebel forces.

The rebel forces in both Dara’a and Al-Quneitra have already indicated that they are not willing to reconcile with the government; however, the Syrian military is attempting to convince the town elders in both provinces to pressure these militants into accepting a deal .

The government’s main priority at this point is reopening the Nassib Crossing in southern Dara’a, so if they can secure an agreement with the rebels to open this site, this could delay the offensive for much longer.

This is an estupidity to take so long time, and even give more time to terrorists for they be able to organize and kill more civilian people.
