Syrian Refugees Approach Israeli Border Waving White Flags

Israel warns Syrians approaching Golan frontier

But a western part of the province, as well as most of adjacent Quneitra, still escape his control.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors Syria's civil war through a network of activists on the ground, put the death toll from the airstrike at 14, including four women and five children.

Hezbollah-controlled al-Manar TV said the Syrian army had captured one of the last rebel-held areas in Deraa province, al-Aliyeh.

Syrian rebels have reached an agreement with government forces to leave the strategic area of Quneitra along the border with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, Syria's official SANA news agency reported.

The regime's recapture of Daraa city would be a huge propaganda win for Syrian President Bashar Assad as the seven-year uprising against him has its roots there.

The observatory could not determine whether the strikes on the town in Daraa's west were carried out by the regime or its Russian ally. Under the recent surrender deal rebels would hand over weapons, and fighters who do not wish to live under state rule would be transferred out.

The shelling also targeted various rebel-held villages in Quneitra province located only a few kilometres from the Israel border where tens of thousands of people had taken shelter from the offensive. The country's majority Sunni population has been pushed out of the cities and, disproportionately, into camps and exile, while minorities have moved closer to the centers of government control.

Other accords are the return of the displaced people to the country with Russian guarantees, the return of the Army to the areas of the 1974 Convention on demilitarized zones, and the pardon of deserters and fugitives from the military service.

The bombardment is part of the government's military offensive - which it began on June 19 - on the remaining opposition pockets in the southwestern region, which includes the Deraa and Quneitra provinces straddling the border with Jordan and the frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Despite a ceasefire being reached between the Islamic Jihad and Hamas and Israel, brokered by Egypt and the United Nations, fighting continued along the Israel-Gaza borders.

Israeli media reports cited Bennett, a Netanyahu rival with ambitions to be prime minister, urging the military to open fire on anyone launching the kites.

Lavrentiev touched upon the Kremlin's transparent and firm position on the Iran nuclear deal, and said Russian Federation regards the imposition of unilateral sanctions against Iran as a violation of this worldwide agreement.

The regime has heavily bombed HTS-held territories since Sunday, leaving 48 jihadists and rebels dead as opposition attacks have killed at least 43 regime fighters, according to the Observatory.

Israel's Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a statement on Monday that the gesture applied from Tuesday until next Sunday, in response to the continued firing of kites carrying firebombs from Gaza.

Israel has refused to comment.
