REUTERS – Syrian troops continued their advance yesterday (July 4) in the southwest region of the country as reconciliation efforts reached local villages.
During a field visit to Deraa, organized by the Syrian army and Information Ministry, Reuters went with other foreign and Arab channels to the Eastern Ghariyah village. The village joined the reconciliation efforts and was recaptured by the Syrian government, amid cheers from local residents for Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and the army.
Accompanied by a major Russian aerial bombing campaign that has led to some of the fastest mass displacements of the war, Syrian pro-government forces have marched swiftly into insurgent territory in Deraa province over the past two weeks.
Syrian rebel negotiators began a new round of talks with Russian officers on Tuesday (July 3) over a peace deal in southern Syria under which they would hand over weapons and allow Russian military police to enter rebel-held towns, a rebel spokesman said. However, he added, that as of today they have failed to reach an agreement.
