BREAD production resumed in the Syrian city of Daraa for the first time in two months as stability returns to the region after the surrender of jihadists who had held it under siege.
Local government spokesman Farid al-Sweidan reported on Sunday that two facilities have started work, with the allocation of flour increasing by 1.5 tons, enabling it to feed the population of Daraa.
Residents began returning to their homes last week after the last remaining jihadists were shipped out on buses to Syria’s northern Idlib province.
It brought an end to months of intense fighting during which time the Islamist rebels shelled civilian homes and fired artillery, causing damage to the Daraa National Hospital.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad offered an amnesty to the groups as part of a Russian-mediated agreement, but it had broken down a number of times as the militia refused to hand over their arms.
Mr Assad has vowed to regain control of the rest of Syria and has called for all occupying forces, including those of the United States and Turkey, to leave the country.
