Field and local news:

On Monday, the opposition’s Central Operation Room of Southern Syria announced that its factions blocked a loyalist forces' attempt to advance towards the Air Defense Battalion near the city of Daraa, Southern Syria.

In a statement obtained by SMART, the Operation Room said that infantry and fire support units "blocked an attempt by the loyalist forces and Iranian militias to advance towards the Air Defense Battalion in Western Daraa."

In Rif Dimashq, the Syrian government-controlled city council of Harasta in Eastern Ghouta, Southern Syria, demanded its residents to remove the rubble of their homes within 10 days. A large number of people expressed their discontent at the decision.

On its Facebook page, the city council said that house owners must remove the rubble of their houses from the streets within 10 days. The Syrian government has opened the main service roads in the city as part of the first stage of the city's reconstruction plan.

In Idlib, the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) called on all opposition factions operating in Northern Syria to form a joint operation room to support the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Islamist factions in Southern Syria and ease the pressure on them.

In a statement obtained by SMART, the HTS said that it "reaches out to all the factions and groups, surpassing all disagreements and favoring the greater good of the nation, to form a joint operation room in order to unify our efforts and support our brothers in the South."

The HTS said that it did not authorize any party, inside or outside Syria, to discuss the detainees' file with the Syrian government.

HTS media said that the HTS detainees’ office is trying to free the fighters detained by the loyalist forces in "every possible way," but the latter have not taken any negotiations seriously. The HTS detainees' office said that the HTS has a larger number of detainees than the loyalist forces have.

Representatives of tribes and clans from Northern Syria announced the formation of the Free Tribes Union after a meeting in Idlib, Northern Syria.

The official spokesman of the Free Tribes Union, Saleh Ibrahim, reported that the new formation includes more than 30 tribes and several independent clans, adding that the union aims to achieve the Syrian people's demands and the principles of the Syrian revolution.

In Aleppo, the Turkish Army and United States forces deployed new military patrols to the frontline between the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the FSA in the Manbij area, 84 kilometers east of Aleppo, Northern Syria.

In Northeastern Syria, the al-Hleisat tribe in the city of al-Raqqa appealed to the International Coalition against the Islamic State to free their tribe members, which were detained by the SDF.

In a statement obtained by SMART, the tribe said that the SDF detained eight of its members, after they quarreled with members of the al-Raqqa civil council in the al-Sina'a area over "organizational issues."
