Syrian rebels say regime  besieqges their enclave in the southern city of Daraa
The Syrian regime army and allied troops Monday laid siege to the rebel-held enclave in the southern city of Daraa and their troops were poised to gain complete control of the city, rebels said.

Abu Shaima, a spokesman for the opposition in the city, said several thousand people were now encircled after the army pushed into a main base west of the city without a fight before a formal evacuation of rebels opposed to a Russian-brokered surrender deal.

A deal was reached on Friday between Russian officers and rebel representatives that surrendered Daraa city along with other towns in the southern province that borders Jordan in another victory for Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies.
