Nearly 50 days after Russian-sponsored agreement | Casualties in renewed fierce clashes between former opposition leader and his group and regime forces in Daraa countryside

SOHR sources reported this morning that regime security services attempted to storm the headquarters of “Abu Tariq Al-Subaihi”, a former opposition commander who is responsible for the killing of nine members of regime security services in an attack on Al-Muzayreb police outpost in early May 2020. According to SOHR sources, fierce clashes erupted between the commander and several gunmen from the area on one hand, and security groups affiliated to regime forces which attempted to storm the ex-commander’s headquarters in an area between Al-Yadoudah and Al-Muzayreb towns in the western countryside of Daraa on the other.

The clashes left casualties on both sides, amid growing security tension in the area. Meanwhile, regime forces fired several rockets on the area, just after the violent clashes.

On January 26, reliable sources in Daraa province told SOHR that an agreement was reached, under Russia’s sponsorship and guarantees, defusing the recent state of tension in Tafas city in the western countryside of Daraa and ordering the handing over of the heavy weapons in the possession of former opposition fighters and commanders in the city. According to the new agreement, no one would be forced to displace to north Syria, except for only one commander called “Abu Tareq Al-Subayhi”. Al-Subayhi is a prominent commander from Ataman town in western Daraa, and was supposed to be deported to north Syria with former fighters and commanders who wanted to leave Daraa. The agreement was reached after a protracted meeting in Tafas attended by representatives of the Russians, the Russian-backed 5th Corps, the central committee in Hawaran, and the regime-backed 4th Division.
