Tensions Intensify in Southern Damascus amid Popular Uprising against Terrorists


Tens of civilians in three regions in the Southern countryside of Damascus city protested against terrorist groups’ attempts to sabotage the reconciliation plan in the region, an Arab media outlet reported on Friday.

The Arabic-language al-Watan daily reported that the residents of Bebeila, Yalda and Beit Saham have started protests after terrorists started capturing the people that asked for implementation of the reconciliation plan.

It went on to say that at least 200 residents of Bebeila poured into the streets and moved towards the Syrian Army positions in the Bebeila’ outskirts but the terrorists prevented them and started clashes with them.

Other media activists said that most of the residents in the region support implementation of the reconciliation plan, adding that the terrorist groups have announced in a joint statement that they will confront those people that intend to join the reconciliation plan.

Terrorists of Jeish al-Islam, Jeish al-Ababi, Ajnad al-Sham, Ferqa Damascus and the brigades of Seif al-Sham and al-Forqan are still operating in the Southern parts of Damascus province.

Dissident-affiliated websites reported on Tuesday that the terrorist groups in the Southern parts of Damascus province engaged in a fresh round of infighting as they have different views over joining peace with the Syrian Army.

The websites reported that the terrorist groups in the town of Bebeila in the Southern parts of Damascus province fought each after rifts widened among them over joining the a reconciliation plan with the army.

The websites said that fierce clashes erupted among terrorists in the main square of the town of Bebeila among pro-peace talks and other terrorists from Jeish al-Ababil of the Free Army and Jeish al-Islam, inflicting several causalities on both sides.

The websites went on to say that the pro-peace talks militants went on alert and poured into streets and moved towards the Syrian Army’s checkpoints in the outskirts of Bebeila.

The websites further said that a meeting had been previously held between the Syrian Army’s reconciliation committee and some of the commanders of the terrorists in Bebeila to pave the ground for the militants’ affiliation to the peace process.
