Syrian army captures Daraa from rebels

The Syrian army, backed by Russian forces, gained control of Daraa on Thursday following a days-long battle for the city in the south of the country against rebel forces.

According to local media reports, the rebels agreed to terms of reconciliation with the rebel group Free Syrian Army and are expected to hand over their weapons to Russian forces. Meanwhile, rebels who refuse to reconcile with Syria, including those from the Free Syrian Army, will be granted a passage for a safe exit from the city.

Last week, the Syrian government retook the highway linking Damascus and the Jordanian capital of Amman.
