Daraa - SMART

The opposition factions in the town of Mahja in Daraa, Southern Syria, form a delegation to set negotiation conditions with the Syrian government about the fate of the town.

A military source from the town, who preferred not to be named, told SMART that the factions refuse to negotiate with the Syrian government unless they release all the town’s detainees. The Syrian government replied that the case of the detainees is "international and complex."

The source explained that the decision was made by the factions three days ago. The town's mayor, Awad al-Suwaidan, who is also a member of the reconciliation committee in Daraa, conveyed the decision. The source stated that the Syrian government has not reacted to their refusal to reconcile so far.

The source also stated that the Syrian government wanted an exclusive military delegation from the opposition factions to negotiate regarding the fate of the town.

On May 15, the government forces gave the people of the town of Mahja and the village of Najeeh two days to form a delegation. A source expected that the Syrian government will give them three possibilities, either a cease-fire as long each party maintains control, the displacement of the town and village people, or a declaration of war. The source added that the meeting is likely aimed at "testing the waters" between the factions and the government.

On March 27, a military source from the town of Mahja said that the Free Syrian Army factions refused to "reconcile" with the Syrian government under the auspices of Russia. This coincided with pro-government media talking about the conclusion of "reconciliation" agreements in several towns and villages outside government control in Daraa.
