Syrian Government Delivers Humanitarian Aid to Areas in Daraa

Nearly all displaced Syrians at the Nassib-Jaber crossing have left the Jordanian border and returned to Syria, Anders Pedersen, the United Nations resident and humanitarian coordinator in Jordan, said on Sunday, Reuters reported.

AMMAN, Jordan-It was little more than three years ago when rebels stormed the Nassib border crossing on Syria's southern border with Jordan.

Several witnesses along the Jordan border fence with Syria said they people saw a convoy of more than a hundred armoured vehicles and tanks with Russian and Syrian state flags, along with hundreds of troops near Nassib.

But, in general, the situation in Daraa and in other areas in southern Syria is seemingly leaning toward negotiations and deals, as Russian Federation has successfully mediated an agreement to settle the situation in Daraa after two weeks of battles that enabled the army to capture Nasib.

Israel said it had targeted a Syrian army post that shelled a frontier "buffer zone" in the Golan area.

Both countries say they will not open their borders, but have distributed some supplies inside Syria.

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.

Syrian government forces, backed by Russian Federation, deployed at the Nassib crossing a day earlier, seizing a vital trade route that insurgents held for three years.

Near the start of the government's offensive, Washington indicated it would respond to violations of that deal, but it has not done so yet and rebels said it had told them to expect no American military help.

About 20,000 civilians had begun returning to their homes Friday evening, according to the pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

But even amongst rebels who have agreed to Friday's deal it is unclear precisely how the terms of the deal will unfold in the coming days.

A regime air strike on the rebel-held half of the provincial capital of Daraa also killed one civilian, he said. "The Russian and the Syrian regime offer no safety", he said.

The Syrian flag has been hoisted at the crossing, the country's main link to Jordan, Syria's state SANA news agency said.

The victory further cements a Russian-engineered turnaround for Assad, which has handed him back control over what the French once called "La Syrie utile"-the string of major cities running from Aleppo down past Damascus and the country's Mediterranean coastline".

"There are large numbers of women and children among the displaced, as well as elderly, injured and sick people and I am especially concerned about them", he continued, adding that among the displaced are local humanitarian workers who have "selflessly served the civilian population throughout the duration of the conflict".

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