Israeli Army Reinforces Positions Near Golan Heights Border With Syria

They also still hold most of the border areas with the Israeli occupied Golan Heights and Jordan.

Thousands of civilians are reported to have fled their homes towards areas in western Daraa, including Nawa and Jassem, and towards the Jordanian border, many of whom remain stranded in the desert area with no access to basic food and water needs.

The army said it shipped the supplies to four camps simultaneously in the southern and central Syrian Golan Heights. Some of the refugees were asking Israel to protect them or even annex the territory.

Russia is seeking the rebel handover of heavy and medium-sized weapons, and the deployment of Russian military police and Syrian police into towns retaken by government forces, Abdel Rahman said. He said he was in touch with the White House.

According to the Ramtha's Ain Al Akhbar news website, nine of these projectiles fell on a farmhouse in Al Turrah village on the border with Syria, causing slight injuries to people there. In just one night, 32 airstrikes took place, hitting nine towns in the Daraa province.

For the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, the retaking the whole of Daraa province would be a key symbolic victory for the regime, as it is seen as the cradle of the anti-Assad uprising seven years ago that spiralled into civil war.

Assad's other main ally Iran, Russia and Turkey have been working to try to find a political solution in Syria through peace talks based in the Kazakh capital Astana.


This ritual was repeated in the town of Dael, north of Daraa, which also joined the reconciliation, together with Tal Khleif and Tal al-Sheikh Hassan, where rebel gunmen started to give up their weapons to the Army.

The talks in the town of Bosra al-Sham, whose Roman citadel is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, collapsed on Saturday, however, as the insurgents rejected Russia's proposed terms for their surrender, a rebel spokesman said.

Ibrahim Jabawi clarified in his statement following the failed talks with Russian Federation that rebel territory next to the Quneitra province, bordering the Golan Heights that is held by Israel, is not part of their discussions.

But rebel participation in negotiations across Daraa province has proved divisive for southwestern Syria's opposition factions, many of whom are split between negotiating a political settlement and continuing to fight.

Amman has said it can not open its frontier to any more Syrians fleeing the seven-year conflict, but on Saturday announced it had sent aid across the border to the displaced. The military says it has stepped up aid in recent days as people fleeing Syria have been arriving at a clip of hundreds a day and now number in the thousands.

Jordan, which has taken in more than half a million displaced Syrians since the war began, and Israel have said they will not open their borders to refugees.
