Daraa Province – Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: SOHR sources have reported that over 40 families returned to their homes in Aiyb village in the northern countryside of Daraa, under Russia’s pressure, a few years after they had been displaced from the village to camps and other areas in Daraa countryside.
According to SOHR sources, nearly 60 other families have not got security permissions to return to the village so far. It is worth noting that the village has previously sustained substantial material damage, while Iranian-backed militias have established a camp in it.
On September 7, reliable sources told SOHR that a delegation of the Syrian regime met, in Bosra al-Sham city in Daraa countryside, with the leaders of the 8th Brigade of the Fifth Corps under Russian sponsorship.
The delegation included the head of the security committee in southern Syria, the head of the Air-Force Intelligence branch, and brigadier generals as representatives of the Military Intelligence and the National Security Branches.
According to Observatory sources, the two sides agreed to work on a comprehensive settlement of the security situation of the 8th Corps’ members and dissident officers, under pressure by the Russian side which formed the Fifth Corps and its military formations.
