Around 1,000 rebels in the Southern province of Daraa laid down their arms on Tuesday and turned themselves in to the Syrian officials amid the terrorist groups' threats against those who surrender to the government.

The militants formerly fighting in the Southern battlefields of the country as well as the wanted persons (some of them going AWOL) surrendered to the Syrian government in Daraa as the forces loyal to the Syrian President Bashar Assad continue gaining ground across the country.

A source in Daraa province told the Syrian SANA news agency that the wanted persons in Azra', al-Sanamin and al-Moslemiya town had their files settled and pardoned.

He added that the files of 5 terrorists who had surrendered themselves and their weapons to the Syrian authorities were also settled.

This is while the terrorist groups had warned to confront anyone who accepts reconciliation with the Syrian government.

In a recent development in the Southern province on Sunday, the Syrian military forces targeted the terrorist groups' positions at the beginning of a road connecting Daraa city's in the Southern and Central districts and in the Eastern deserts of Sweida, cutting off the militants' supply route for several hours.

Syrian soldiers hit militant groups' strongholds in Northwest of al-Karak square, the surroundings of post office building, in Northern side of al-Khalil mosque and in Eastern side of electricity company in Daraa al-Balad and Daraa al-Mahatta, where most cases of arms smuggling happen.

Militants suffered a heavy death toll in the attacks and no arms and ammunition consignment could enter the city, FNA reported.
