Syria: the clashes in Deraa

The conflict between Syrian government armies and rebels is escalating near Deraa. It is described as a substantial clash from the time when the southern eponymous province went under government control about three years ago.

Aggression started when government armies fired artillery shells to the past opposition hub of Deraa al-Balad with a ground offense too. Approximately half of the people of the rebel-controlled district escaped the heavy shelling and ground battles. The United Nations notified leftover civilians are left with decreasing supplies.

Deraa borders Jordan and is near to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. It is extensively seen as the foundation of the 2011 uprising in Syria, that caused a decade-long civil war that killed nearly half a million human beings.

In 2011, young boys who made graffiti contrary to President Bashar al-Assad were imprisoned in Deraa, generating state demonstrations. After the demonstrations progressed into war, rebels held control over the area. The rebels held on until 2018. After weeks of lethal combat, the Russia-supported regime recaptured control under a surrender agreement. Since this 2018 “reconciliation” agreement, Deraa province has got consistent blasts plus hit and run attacks.

The election happened merely in two-thirds of Syria in government control. There were no poll boxes in Deraa al-Balad. Subsequently, al-Assad announced winning his fourth tenure in power, he vowed to return all of Syria to state control. People and protestors believe the government desires “revenge”. “Many people in Deraa al-Balad are wanted by the regime,” said activist Omar al-Hariri.

At end of July, a few of the severest clashes took place in the province from the time when government forces went back it left 32 dead, including 12 civilians, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said.

The world is watching all the atrocities in Syria yet there is no end coming to this decade-long conflict. Deraa is just a recent example of what a war-torn state is losing day by day and that is humanity from people at the cost of constant human life loss.
