Fourth Division Conducts Farm Searches

At five in the morning on Tuesday, the Fourth Division began searching farms in the southern region of Tafas city in the western countryside of the Daraa Governorate. 

This comes following the implementation of the agreement that the Central Committee, the Security Committee in the city of Daraa, and Fourth Division officers reached on Monday. 

The farms are being inspected by members of the Fourth Division, in the presence of the owners, local members of the settlement groups who operate in western Daraa, and Central Committee representatives.

Monday’s agreement came after a series of meetings that resulted in the cessation of the military operation that the Fourth Division had been carrying out. The agreement also prevented the displacement of six people that the Fourth Division had demanded to deport towards northern Syria. 

The agreement also stipulated handing over medium weapons, which drew attention in the area recently, and searches of some farms on the southern side of the city and some government headquarters, in addition to reactivating the Civil Status Department in the Tafas police station building. 

It is reported that military members from the Fourth Division arrived in the west of Daraa at the beginning of the year and threatened to take military action to storm the city of Tafas, west of Daraa. The threats led to sporadic clashes that killed and wounded people.
