Syrian rebels say reached deal with Russia over handover of weapons


AMMAN: Syrian rebels reached a deal with Russian officers Friday on a phased handover of their weapons and the deployment of Russian military police near the Jordanian border, a rebel spokesman said.

Ibrahim Jabawi said the agreement was reached during ongoing talks in a town in southern Syria that also includes a cessation of hostilities by both sides.

Rebels in Deraa province who are not willing to reconcile with the government will leave to insurgent-held areas of the north under the Russian-brokered agreement, rebel sources added.
