250 armed rebels surrender to Syrian army in Damascus countryside

TEHRAN (FNA)- Tens of the Syrian opposition forces surrendered themselves to the Muslim country’s army in Damascus countryside in Southern Syria.

A sum of 250 Syrian opposition forces admitted defeat and surrendered themselves in Barzeh in Damascus countryside after being under the siege of the army and the national defense forces for more than a year, Russia Today satellite television channel reported.

The Syrian armed rebels surrendered themselves after the Syrian army and the armed rebel groups reached an agreement with the mediation of Syria’s National Defense Committee.

The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
