BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) raised the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic over the town of Tafas, today, after securing a reconciliation deal with the rebel forces on Wednesday.

As shown in the video below, the SAA raised the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic over the city council building in Tafas after entering the town this morning.

Despite entering the town this morning, the Syrian Army troops inside of Tafas are expected to withdraw in the coming hours, as per the reconciliation deal.

Russian military police will enter the town and ensure the safety of the reconciliation agreement; this includes collecting the heavy weapons from the reconciled rebels and setting up checkpoints in Tafas.

Tafas was originally supposed to be under a reconciliation agreement; however, the rebels inside the town reneged on the deal once the Syrian Army approached the area.
