>> It's been a while since pictures of Syria's president were waved in celebration here. The Syrian army brought Reuters to this village in southern Daraa province, keen to show off the celebrations after they pushed rebels out. The Russians want to see more of this. Rebels handing over their weapons and allowing Russian military police to enter rebel-held towns.
Rebel negotiators began a new round of talks with Russian officers, but have so far failed to reach an agreement. And the Syrian military continues to pound rebel-held towns. According to a war monitor, there were more than 600 airstrikes in 15 hours. This is one of the last remaining rebel strongholds in Syria, bordering Jordan and Israel, the war-weary are on the march again.
The fighting has already driven more than a quarter of a million Syrians from their homes. Jordan and Israel have said, their borders will remain shut. These refugees staging a protest at the Israeli occupied Golan Heights. Appealing to the UN and international community to stop Russia from carrying out its offensive.
On the Jordanian border, a moment of relief in this makeshift clinic. They've only just set up and they've already received 600 patients. But after seven years of conflict, Jordan says they can't let a new round of refugees in, they’re already sheltering over a million. This part of Syria was supposed to be a deescalation zone.
Families believed they were safe here, and now they have nowhere left to run.
