ISWNews Analysis Group: Despite an agreement between the Syrian army and militants in Daraa al-Balad to establish a ceasefire and end tensions, sporadic clashes between Syrian forces and militants have begun since last night.
Although the Daraa Central Committee (affiliated to the militants) agreed with Russian representatives on Wednesday on the implementation of the ceasefire in Daraa al-Balad, a number of militants refused to accept the terms of the ceasefire, which eventually led to the ceasefire violation and resuming clashes in the city of Daraa.
At 10 pm last night, just minutes after the elders of the Daraa tribes left the Daraa al-Balad neighborhood, artillery and rocket attacks by the Syrian army against the militants began in Daraa al-Balad. As of this morning, the Syrian army has launched ground attacks from several directions to advance in this neighborhood, and clashes are currently continuing in Daraa al-Balad.
