Fighting resumed in the province this summer after insurgents killed several servicemen and shelled settlements controlled by the government.
According to the newspaper Al-Watan, the Syrian Arab Army has started a clearing operation in the southeastern portion of Deraa Province, right near the Jordanian border.
The report said that government forces will be re-establishing full control over 19 settlements, previously held by militants. At the same time, members of the opposition-led Free Syrian Army will be granted amnesty if they surrender their weapons and stop fighting.
