BEIRUT: On Tuesday, A monitor said that many individuals will be emptied from two besieged pro-regime towns in Syria in exchange for the release of prisoners held in regime’s jails.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said: “Under an arrangement facilitated regime ally Russia and Turkey, Fuaa and Kafraya, the last assaulted towns in the nation, will be completely emptied after three years of encirclement.”

“The deal accommodates the aggregate departure of inhabitants in the two towns, which are attacked by the rebels and Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham, to regime territory in nearby Aleppo province,” said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman.

Abdel Rahman told AFP: “In return, many prisoners will be discharged from regime prisons.”

On Tuesday, Syrian state media reported on preliminary information on a deal to free “thousands” of people in Fuaa and Kafraya.

Fuaa and Kafraya, the main two places in Syria right now assigned as assaulted by the UN, are home to an expected 8,100 individuals, the vast majority of them Shiite Muslims.

15 civilians killed
On Tuesday, the airstrikes killed in excess of twelve regular people in parts of Syria’s south close to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, a war monitor said.

The regime has been beating the southwestern area of Quneitra since Sunday in an offer to retake it from the opposition, in the wake of winning back the vast majority of the neighboring governorate of Daraa in under multi month.

“The airstrikes killed 14 civilians in Ain Al-Tina village on Quneitra’s border with Daraa which had reportedly been taking shelter in a vast building,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said: “They were all displaced from other areas. They included five kids and three ladies.”

The Britain-based monitor said: “Two bodies were so charred they were unrecognizable. It was not instantly certain whether the strikes were carried out by the regime or its Russian ally.”
