The Syrian regime’s air forces intensified shelling over the “Triangle of Death”, which includes areas in northwest Daraa and the Quneitra’s central countryside.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the regime’s air forces targeted positions in Tal Al-Hara, Aqrba, Tal Mashra and others, adding that the number of raids targeting the Triangle of Death since Sunday morning increased to around 230.

The regime also used explosive barrels, the observatory added.

Evacuating opposition fighters and their families from Daraa began on Sunday. The evacuation implements the ceasefire decision reached between Russia and opposition factions on July 6. Hundreds of fighters and their family members boarded 15 buses on Sunday leaving Daraa.

Opposition factions in Daraa also began handing their heavy weapons over to the regime on Saturday.

The observatory noted that opposition factions control around 70% of Quneitra, which bears a sensitive location considering its borders with the Golan Heights occupied by Israel.
