Over the past day, in the Daraa province, the SAA has established control over the villages of Khirbet at-Their and Al-Shaykh Saad, located south of the city of Nawa. In the framework of reconciliation, militants in Muzayrib and al-Yadudah handed over 7 tanks and 3 IFV. In addition, buses with militants left the city of Muhaja, after which the flag of the SAR was raised in the city.

According to the military source, the Syrian Army took control of the last ten towns under rebel control in western Daraa, effectively ending their battle against them after three weeks of intense fighting.

Also, Syrian multiple-launch rocket systems shelled ISIS terrorists in the Yarmouk River basin and in the area of the Tell Jumou Height. The Syrian Observatory reports that 26 civilians died as a result of airstrikes on the IS enclave.

Meanwhile, during the last 24 hours, the SAA entered 36 villages and towns in Quneitra province. Some of these villages are located within the demilitarized zone, along the occupied Golan Heights, which confirms that the deployment of the SAA there is coordinated with Russia. Moreover, two parties with militants left Quneitra and moved in the province of Idlib.
