  • Israeli army force comes under fire in Gaza buffer zone

Earlier on Tuesday, 15 civilians were killed in strikes in both provinces, including 14 in Ain al-Tina village on the administrative border with Quneitra.

Rebel forces firing artillery less than 50 yards from the fence were seen in photographs said to have been taken from the Israeli side, as regime forces advanced to within a few miles.

Air strikes killed seven civilians in Quneitra, which has been under bombardment since Sunday in a bid to retake the southwestern province from rebels, after winning back most of the neighbouring governorate of Daraa in less than a month.

A picture taken on July 17, 2018 from the Israeli-annexed Syrian Golan Heights shows displaced Syrians from the provinces of Daraa and Quneitra at their camp near the Syrian village of Burayqah in the southern province of Quneitra.

It was not immediately clear whether the strikes were carried out by the regime or its Russian ally, the Britain-based monitor said.

Quneitra province borders the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights.

In reference to a raft of fresh Israeli restrictions on Gaza, the group said: "The more they tighten the siege, the more fires we'll set [inside Israel]".

While Moscow and Tehran have both provided military aid to the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad against the Al Qaeda-linked militias that have been armed and funded by U.S. and other Western powers, along with Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar, Russian and Iranian interests are by no means identical.

Fighters in a nearby town, Nawa, were in talks for a similar agreement, he added.

Rebels began handing over their heavy weapons on Saturday and continued to do so on Sunday morning.

This achievement forced the Al-Harra town militants to surrender and reconcile with government, local media said.

The regime and Russian Federation responded by heavily bombing the hilltop, killing 30 militants from Al Qaeda's former Syria affiliate, Hayat Tahrir al Sham (or HTS). Assad's office said the two agreed that the "elimination of terrorism in most of the Syrian territory has laid the most appropriate ground to reach results at the political level" that could put an end to Syria's war.

Erdogan and Trump stressed that the common roadmap in Manbij would make a significant contribution for the resolution of the crisis in Syria, the office said.

"We now are working on the logistical arrangements", said an Islamist rebel source familiar with the secret negotiations that Turkey was also involved in.
