BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:10 P.M.) – A military source from the National Defense Forces (NDF) told Al-Masdar News on Monday that government and rebel delegations held a new round of peace talks inside the besieged Shiite towns of Kafraya and Al-Fou’aa.

According to the military source, the government and rebel delegation discussed moving the remaining 1,500 residents inside Kafraya and Al-Fou’aa to areas controlled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

The source added that the talks have not been productive, as the rebels threatened to launch a major offensive to capture both towns if the government does not agree to evacuate the residents from Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya.

This latest round of peace talks comes after the Syrian Arab Army seized the provincial capital of Daraa from the rebel forces.

With Turkey fearful of a potential Syrian Army offensive in Idlib, the government is looking to ease tensions by allowing Ankara to control this province in exchange for reopening the Aleppo-Gaziantep Highway.
