In Syria, the rebels in Bosra al-Sham town of Daraa province have agreed to a deal to hand over their heavy weapons to Russian troops.

This has been reported by Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Syrian state media.

Jordan on Sunday mediated a new round of talks between the rebels in the southwest and the Syrian government's main ally Russia, seeking a wider truce in the area to avert more bloodshed and displacement of people.

However, some sources disputed the news about the surrender deal, saying handing over of some armored vehicles by the rebels to Russian troops in the town was a goodwill gesture as talks went on.
