BEIRUT: On Thursday, a group of Daesh seized a village in southern Syria overnight from rebels who had agreed to a regime takeover, a Britain-based monitor said.

A great part of the southern territory of Daraa had been tranquil since Friday, when a truce bargain among rebels and the Russian-sponsored administration finished an almost three-week government strike. However, Jaish Khaled receptacle Walid, a nearby office of Daesh that controls a little corner in the southwest of the territory, on the fringe with Jordan and near the Israeli-involved Golan Heights, is excluded in that arrangement.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said: “The radicals took control of the town of Heet close to the Jordanian outskirt.”

Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said: “After vicious conflicts, Jaish Khaled canister Walid took control of Heet regardless of Russian and administration air strikes against them.”

He also said that fighting since Wednesday has left 16 rebels and 12 extremists dead including two suicide bombers.

The regime has been squeezing military and arrangement endeavors to retake the entire of Daraa and the contiguous Quneitra region from the opposition since June 19.

An administration triumph in the key territory flanking Jordan and the occupied Golan Heights would be emblematic, as it is viewed as the support of the seven-year uprising.

The regime currently controls in excess of 80 percent of Daraa area, the Observatory says, however a few sections of its western field stay under opposition control.

Since 2015, President Bashar Assad’s regime has retaken in excess of 60 percent of the nation, when Russia interceded militarily to support it.

It should be noted that Syria’s civil war has killed more than 350,000 people and displaced millions since it began in 2011 with a severe crackdown of hostile to Assad dissents.
