Armed opposition factions have reached a security agreement in Giza, south-east of Daraa, after a meeting between several battalions and the Nusra Front.
The agreement was a result of a lengthy assessment of the conditions inthe the city recently, especially many security and judicial problems in the region, media activist Mohammed al-Hourani told All4syria.
The agreement sees the establishment of a police station and a security official assigned to arrest anyone who disturbs the peace in the city and who has the authority to deliver him to the court to take the appropriate judicial action against him. The military battalions operating in the city will provide full support for the station in order to establish security,fight corruption and prevent any problems between clan members and civilians.
Hourani confirmed that seven factions signed the agreement, including the Nusra Front, the Shariah Council in the city, the Sahl Horan Brigade, the first artillery regiment, Abdullah bin Rawaha Battalion, Ahrar ash-Sham Islamic Movement and the Ahbab ar-Rasoul Brigade.
Like other areas in Daraa, the city suffers from power outages for more than twenty hours a day, a sharp rise in food prices, the loss of drinking water, which has all increased the suffering of civilians under the difficult living conditions at the beginning of the month of Ramadan.
