DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4: 18 P.M.) – Syrian rebels in southern province of Daraa have reportedly concluded a reconciliation agreement following weeks of fierce fighting.

According to the pan-Arabist satellite television channel, Al-Mayadeen, a meeting – brokered by Russia –  was held yesterday last night between Syrian officials and representatives of the rebel groups in the town of Izra, located to the north of the provincial capital.

The alleged agreement’s terms stipulate that the Syrian government pulls out Army troops from the city of Daraa – while maintaining positions outside the provincial capital – only to be replaced by police and security forces, which shall take over the area.

For their parts, rebel fighters shall accept a full-scale reconciliation deal and have their status settled by the government. Unlike other similar agreements, those unwilling to reconcile can stay rather than be evacuated to the country’s north.

In return,  the Syrian government shall release prisoners as per lists provided by  the city’s elders.

According to the purported deal, a joint military council that includes Army troops and rebel fighters shall be formed with the aim to identify the terrorist groups and eventually fighting them.

AMN has contacted a military source in Daraa who denied any truce being currently implemented, but without denying a possible agreement.

“Battles are still ongoing; we haven’t yet received any orders to implement a ceasefire. But we do know that Russia is attempting to conclude a reconciliation deal in Daraa,” he told AMN.

Meanwhile, the Syrian jet fighters conducted an airstrike against rebel position in Nasib border crossing
