Syria rebels return to talks with Russian Federation after strikes pummel south

Syria rebels return to talks with Russian Federation after strikes pummel south

Jordan's Minister of Foreign Affairs Ayman Safadi stated that Jordan, now facing 60,000 refugees currently near its border with Syria, placed the safe return of Syrian refugees on the top of its priority list.

Syrian government soldiers took control of "all of the Free Syrian Army (FSA)-controlled border zone" on Sunday evening, one southern rebel commander told Syria Direct on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to the the press.

The United Nations says the assault, which began on June 19, has pushed more than 320,000 people to flee, but SANA said the deal would see them return to their homes.

Russian-backed Syrian forces had launched an offensive in southern Syria two weeks ago.

Rebels who did not wish to come back under Assad's rule would leave for the insurgent stronghold in northwest Syria, they said.

The crossing, a key trade route, was held by opposition groups almost for three years.

The operations ended up with eliminating a number of terrorists and destroying their hotbeds and weapons while the others fled towards the Jordanian border where the army units continue to pursue them and target them with appropriate weapons.

The Observatory and the government-controlled Syrian Central Military Media said troops now also control most areas along the Jordanian border, after taking the main border crossing there.

"Here, too, if there is a violation, and certainly in the southern Syrian region which is close to the citizens of the State of Israel, and a bringing of weaponry that should not be there, Israel will take action", Erdan said.

President Appoints Four (4) New Supreme Court Judges
On CNN's "State of the Union", Maine's senior senator said she would support nominees who consider Roe v. He cited former justices William Brennan, John Paul Stevens and Harry Blackmun, who authored the Roe v.

He added that the Jordanians are working on resuming the talks between rebels and the Russians in southwestern Syria.

Osama Al Homsi, 26, said he was hesitant to return to his hometown of Jeeza in southeastern Daraa after the deal.

Calm reigned over the region on Saturday as the two sides finalised the ceasefire deal, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitoring group.

Leaders of the armed groups in the Syrian province of Deraa agreed on a ceasefire, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

"Rebels will hand over their heavy-duty weapons in stages in exchange for the regime withdrawing from four towns" it had recently recaptured, said Abazeed.

As Assad seeks victory, there seems little hope of a negotiated peace, with six million Syrian refugees overseas and 6.5 million more internally displaced.

A key ally of Damascus, Moscow has been brokering talks for the negotiated surrender of rebels in areas of southern Syria bordering Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Assad's Iran-backed allies are also fighting in the campaign, defying Israeli demands they keep out of the border area.

More than 350,000 people have been killed and millions displaced since Syria's war started in 2011 with a brutal crackdown on anti-government protests.
