Jordan to Keep Border Closed to Syria's Displaced

The government's offensive in southwest Syria followed similar pushes elsewhere in the country in recent months, where it has managed to retake swathes of territory from rebel groups.

Syrian youths carry Syrian president's portraits after Syrian government forces recently recaptured the village of Ghariyah ash Sharqiyah from the rebels, in the province of Deraa, on July 4, 2018.

Mr Safadi said his meeting with Sergey Lavrov would produce more understandings and would "take us more steps forward to contain this crisis and prevent more destruction".

Jordan and Israel have said their borders would remain closed, even as tens of thousands of Syrians flee the government offensive.

Russian Federation backs a Syrian government offensive in the southern province of Daraa, which has displaced tens of thousands of Syrians, sending a lot of them toward the closed Jordanian border or the frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Rebels in southern Syria were divided on Monday over whether to accept deals offered by Russian Federation that would see regime forces retake control of opposition towns.

Karl Schembri, from the Norwegian Refugee Council, said aid agencies were ready to help if Jordan lets the refugees cross its border.

The first round of talks on Saturday prompted rebels to walk out, saying Russian terms amounted to a humiliating surrender.

And if Penn's findings are correct, most Americans are now closer to President Trump than present-day Democratic leaders. Oakland has been a sanctuary city since 1986 and as a result , refuses to cooperate with ICE or DHS immigration raids.

Some 650,000 Syrian refugees are currently registered with the UNHCR in Jordan, but the government estimates that more than double that number are in the country, and the kingdom now insists it can not take any more. Displaced families could return with guarantees by Russian military police.

The IDF estimates that Assad's forces, which enjoy the backing of Russian troops and air cover, will reconquer the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.

Rebels and residents say that a string of rebel towns have worked out their own surrender arrangements that have allowed the Russian military police to enter their towns and patrol neighbourhoods.

The hand-over process in Busra al-Sham is expected to be completed on Tuesday, said SANA.

A week ago the worldwide organisation said that 160,000 people had been displaced.

"The time has come for the conscience of humanity to wake up after the greatest crime in history is being committed against the Syrian people", he said in a statement on Sunday.

World powers have criticized the operation for violating a ceasefire announced a year ago by Washington, Amman and Moscow, but they have not managed to halt the blitz.

The Nabaa Media, an opposition activist collective, also said that fighting is taking place in Tafas, adding that thousands of people have fled toward the fence along the frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
