Within the regional – international negotiations on the Syrian south, Russia presents its proposals similar to what it presented in the Eastern Ghouta, south Damascus, and, central Syria
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights obtained details of Russia’s proposals on the future of Syrian south, which were the departure of Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham and Jaysh Khalid Ibn al-Walid –which swore allegiance to the “Islamic State” organization–, as well as for those who refuse the agreement towards a destination to be determined, provided that the rebel and Islamic factions merge together in 2 main bodies, one in the eastern area of Daraa province and the other in its western area, where they will work alongside the Russian police under the name “local forces”, while the Russians undertake not to enter the regime forces to the cities and towns; provided that the institutions of the country re-operate and the “internationally recognized” flag of the Syrian regime will be raised, while the regime forces will spread on the entire border with the occupied Syrian Golan and Jordan, in addition to opening the border crossing with Jordan, also the fighters loyal to the regime forces of non-Syrian nationalities will exit, where there are about 500 members of Hezbollah and Iranian advisors in the triangle of Daraa – Quneitra – southwest of Rif Dimashq, amid information about the presence of thousands of non-Syrian nationals who carry IDs of the regime and spread south of Syria as if they were forces of the regime or gunmen loyal to them of Syrian nationality.
The Syrian Observatory has just published that the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights obtained information from several reliable sources, who confirmed to the Observatory that the regime forces continue to bring military reinforcements of members and loyal gunmen to the countryside of Daraa and Quneitra, in preparations for a military operation that both provinces may witness if no agreement was reached on the future of both of them, this coincides with bringing reinforcements of materiel and members, along with preparations by the Iranian Forces and Forces of the Lebanese Hezbollah and militias operating under the command of the Iranian Forces; to withdraw from both provinces and from the lines near the border with the Occupied Syrian Golan.
In the name context, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights received information about negotiations between regional and international parties, about the current and future situation of the military forces operating in the countryside of Daraa and Quneitra, and the information reported that Jordanian – American – Russian consultations are taking place about several points concerning the stay of the rebel and Islamic factions operating in Daraa; in exchange for handing over their medium and heavy weapons, and the entry of Russian military police, and that any force or members belong to the Iranian forces, the Lebanese Hezbollah and their affiliated militia will not enter, and the border points will be handed over to regime’s police and its border guards, and also the area will be managed by local councils that will be formed from residents of the area.
Daraa province, and al-Quneitra Vince, has been witnessing since the 25th of May 2018 the regime forces are continuing their mobilizations and bringing military reinforcements of their members and the militiamen loyal to them, in a preparation for a military operation in both provinces of Daraa and Al-Quneitra in the Syrian South, which has been witnessing a truce and a cessation of combat operations since 2017, where more reinforcements have arrived in the northern countryside of Al-Quneitra and Daraa countryside, in a preparation for a military operation which is expected to start in the case that an agree is not reached with the factions of the Syrian South, and the Syrian Observatory published few hours ago, that it monitored the factions of Daraa city and its countryside fortifying their points of deployment and position, and putting barricades and preparing the military vehicles, weapons as well as providing points and sites with weapons and ammunitions, and intersected sources confirmed to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that this fortifying process comes in preparation for a potential military operation, of which the regime and the Russians may carry out in Daraa province and Syrian south, where the fortifications included sites of the factions in the countryside of Quneitra as a part of the preparation process for a violent clashes the regime forces may launch with their allies at any time in the coming days, despite the Russian – American – Jordanian agreement in the Syrian south that has been in effect since the 9th of July 2017.
And the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored in the past days regime’s and Russian helicopters dropping leaflets over Daraa province, in which they called the citizens and fighters to “join the reconciliation and settle their situation and help stop the bloodshed”, followed by forming the Rescue Army by factions working in Daraa and Quneitra, where the Syrian Observatory published on Friday that Syrian Observatory for Human Rights Monitored helicopters flying over Daraa province, dropping leaflets as a warning to the rebel and Islamic factions operating in the province, there were two versions of the leaflets, and they say:
“Don’t be like these, this is the inevitable end, for anyone who insists on keep carrying the guns, the ensure of your life is an irreplaceable opportunity, don’t lose it with your stubbornness, drop your weapon and leave before it’s too late” and the other leaflets say: “your life and the fate of your children are more important than your stubbornness, hey gunman, for whom you are gambling with your life?! Why don’t you live with your family and your children like others?! Where are they those who pushed you to die, those who made the career of murder, sabotage, and destruction a beautiful career in your eyes?! All of them have abandoned you and went for the death, you have two choices, either the inevitable death or abandoning the weapon, the men of the Syrian Arab Army are coming, make your decision before it is too late.”, and the dropping these leaflets came with a Russian push and supervision, and comes in an attempt to achieve a “reconciliation” in Daraa province, or to turn after that to the option of military operation, of which the regime forces and their allies and with the Russian support; have started preparing for.
