Field and local developments:

On Monday, the Syrian businessman Firas Tlass revealed to SMART the items of his initiative to give Russia the management of Northern Homs and Southern Hama.

The initiative, of which SMART got a copy, includes the formation of a committee represented by the Hmeimim Russian base, military leaders and civilian bodies to reach a "comprehensive" adjustment with Russia, and a complete cease-fire between the parties and the Syrian government.

The initiative also calls for an amnesty to all those wanted for "security" of the Syrian government forces. It also calls for releasing all detainees who have been arrested for non-criminal reasons since 2011, in return for the release of all abductees by military factions.

On Monday, a member of the Joint Military Command said that the Tlass initiative has not been accepted initially, including "lethal" items.

The Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Islamist battalions repulsed an attack by the Syrian government forces backed by Iranian militias on Northern Homs, Central Syria.

On Monday, the commander of the Rastan operations room, Maj. Khalid Shemer, told SMART that the Syrian government forces and Iranian militia infiltrated last night to the villages of Beit al-Rai and Tal Ria; they also tried to advance to the farms of Rastan city, but the Rastan operations room ambushed them and recovered their landmarks.

The Syrian government forces are preparing to attack the Islamic State’s bases south of Damascus.

Local activists told SMART that Syrian government forces brought reinforcements from pro-government militias near Douma, including the National Defense, the Arab National Guard, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), and the guards of Palestine.

On Monday, ISIS’ members attacked the Syrian government forces’ bases in Badia Olyania, 60 kilometers south of Palmyra, in the eastern Homs countryside, Central Syria.

A special source, who refused to be named, told SMART that ISIS attacked the Syrian government forces using car bombs followed by an infiltration. ISIS killed a number of Syrian government forces’ members, and seized ammunition and military devices, and then the infiltrators withdrew.

On Monday, the FSA attacked the loyalist forces at the Mahasa base in the eastern region of Qalamoun, Rif Dimashq.

The director of the Martyr Ahmed Abdo media office, Said Saif, told SMART that the aim of the attack is to relieve the pressure on besieged cities and towns of eastern Qalamoun by the Syrian government forces and militias loyal to it.

On Monday, a landmine planted by ISIS exploded in the village of Shehail, 37 kilometers east of Deir Ez-Zor, Eastern Syria, killing and wounding five women.

On Monday, the Kurdish People's Protection Units arrested the sister of a member of the Kurdish National Council and her family in the city of Qamishli in al-Hasakah, Northeast Syria.

A member of the Kurdish National Council, Ibrahim Pero, told SMART that the militants of the Democratic Union Party (PYD) raided his home in the city and arrested his sister, her husband and their son without an arrest warrant.

Political and international developments:

On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov denied that Russia had tried to manipulate the place of the chemical attack in Douma, 14 kilometers east of Damascus, amid mutual accusations between Russia and Western countries of obstructing the work of the investigation team of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Lavrov told BBC that he assured that Russia had not intervened at the place of the chemical attack, after the United States Envoy to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Kenneth Ward, reported that there were fears that Russia had spoiled the place of the chemical attack in Douma.

On Monday, a number of foreign ministers of the European Union (EU) member states made separate statements about Western airstrikes that targeted Syrian government sites, and their vision of a solution in Syria before a meeting in Luxembourg.

The EU, the U.S. and the United Kingdom also called for action to prevent any use of chemical weapons, amid fears that Russia has spoiled evidence of the use of these materials in the city of Douma, Eastern Damascus.

EU foreign ministers also threatened to impose new sanctions on the Syrian government for repeated use of chemical weapons without referring to sanctions against Russia.

The White House said that it is considering to impose additional sanctions on Russia after its ally, the Syrian government, launched a chemical attack on the city of Douma.
