SYRIA (OBSERVATORY) – Intense clashes took place between elements of the Free Syrian Army and Daesh terrorists in the Syrian province of Daraa.
On Tuesday, April 10, elements of the Free Syrian Army (ASL) and Daesh terrorists were engaged in intense clashes around Jillen and Hayt, northwest of the city of Daraa, chief town of the province of the same name.
The ASL is made up of officers and soldiers who have left the regular Syrian army. This group was formally established on July 29, 2011.
Meanwhile, the head of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Conflicting Parties in Syria, Yuri Yevtushenko, said on Sunday, April 8, that information obtained from Ahrar al-Sham indicates that terrorist groups in southern Syria are preparing to carry out a series of provocations, including the use of chemical weapons, in Deraa.
He further stated that the terrorists intended to film the consequences of this use of chemical weapons in order to inform the general public. They will also try, by this operation, to accuse the Syrian army of killing civilians and thus to justify their own actions in violation of the cease-fire agreement in the province of Deraa.
This comes as the Syrian government dispatched to Daraa, at the end of March, some of the military equipment it had sent to Eastern Ghouta.
In fact, he sent to Daraa province some of the military equipment he had previously deployed in Eastern Ghouta to secure the area in the suburbs of Damascus.
The transfer of this military equipment to the South comes after rumors that the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and its allies will soon launch military operations.
The agreement on de-escalation zones in Syria was signed in mid-July thanks to the efforts of Iran, Russia and Turkey. This inter-Syrian agreement, which could be a first step towards peace and security in the country, has been repeatedly violated by the terrorists backed by the Westerners present in the negotiations.
