The Syrian government reported today that reconciliation deals in the Daraa countryside have finished. The government also opened a center at a police station within the city of Daraa for any remaining individuals who want to “settle their statuses” with the authorities, the official news outlet SANA reported

The city of Daraa in southern Syria was the birthplace of the Syrian revolution in 2011. Protests subsequently spread throughout the country, and the civil war began after the violent government crackdown. Government forces defeated rebel groups and took control of Daraa and surrounding areas in 2018. However, in 2020, an insurgency occurred in the region.
