Israel says it struck Syrian target

Israel says it struck Syrian target

State news agency SANA said the capture of the Naseeb border crossing happened Friday afternoon after a deal was reached between rebels and Russian mediators to end the violence in southern Syria.

Syrian government forces deployed at the Nassib crossing on Saturday, seizing a vital trade route that rebels held for three years.

State media made no mention of the agreement.

According to the Observatory at least 18 people were killed in the blast, among them seven civilians and 11 SDF fighters.

Russian Federation has been at the forefront of the Deraa campaign, both bombing and negotiating with rebels who were told at the start of the offensive to expect no help from the United States.

The military's next target in the southern offensive appears to be the parts of nearby Quneitra province in rebel hands at the Golan frontier.

Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Files Request To Hire Foreign Workers - Again
Donald Trump wants to hire 61 people from overseas to come and work as waiters and cooks at his luxury Mar-a-Lago resort. Despite President Trump's push for US companies to hire American workers, even his own businesses are not complying.

A commander in a regional military alliance that backs Mr Assad said an Israeli air strike had hit a Syrian village in Quneitra yesterday, causing no casualties.

Syrian families return to their homes in towns and villages situated on the eastern outskirts of Dara'a, Syria, on June 6, 2018.

According to the rebels, Moscow had previously rejected their demands for a phased surrender of their heavy weaponry and safe passage to opposition territory elsewhere for rebels and civilians who did not want to live under government rule.

This comes after Israel extended humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees arriving in the Golan Heights from the war-zone in Syria's Daraa province.

The forces in Deraa province recovered the crossing on Friday in an offensive that has swept into insurgent territory in southwest Syria with the help of heavy Russian air power.

He said a limited number of infiltration attempts from the Syrian side had been detected and prevented recently.

Another Fox in Trump's White House
Donald Trump is virtually a Fox News contributor, so frequent are his interviews with the Murdoch family's news channel. The White House job of director of communications has been vacant since the departure in March of top aide Hope Hicks.

State-run news agency SANA said Friday that the Syrian government, not Russian Federation, had reached the deal with the rebels.

Amman has played a leading role in getting Syrian rebels to agree to terms of surrender that include stationing of Russian military police in the south. Rebels hope the Russians will guarantee the safety of civilians from state retribution.

Anders Pedersen, the top United Nations humanitarian coordinator in Jordan, told reporters Sunday that just 150 to 200 Syrians remained near a key crossing point into Jordan, adding that as "far as we understand they are nearly exclusively men". The deal fractured the opposition, which said its fighters would not leave other positions in the south under any circumstances. Hezbollah is helping lead the offensive but keeping a low profile, pro-Damascus sources told Reuters.

Syrian soldiers are celebrating the recapture of the main border crossing with Jordan, raising portraits of President Bashar Assad and tearing down rebel flags.

Reports also said that the losses of the Jordanian transportation sector as a result of the border closure is estimated at around half a billion USA dollars.
