Government forces and their allies have captured the key city of Busr Al-Harir, as well as many towns in the eastern part of Daraa, including in the Lajat region.

State news agency SANA said Sunday the national flag had been hoisted in one of these towns, Dael, while Syrian state television showed images of people celebrating.

The U.N. said earlier this week that some 50,000 people have been displaced, many of them heading toward the border with Jordan, which said it would keep its frontier closed to people fleeing.

Jordan stepped in to try to avert further violence and stem another wave of displacement across its border with Syria on Sunday, mediating new talks between rebels and the Syrian government's main ally Russian Federation for a truce in the southwest.

Daraa province, home to an estimated 750,000 civilians, comprises the largest section of Syria's rebel-held southwest, now one of the last two remaining opposition strongholds in the country.

Southwest Syria is a "de-escalation zone" of reduced warfare and bombardment agreed by Russia, Jordan and the United States past year.

Jumana Ghunaimat, spokeswoman for Jordan's government, briefed reporters after the prime minister's visit, defending Jordan's position not to open the border to the fleeing refugees.

The Russians were not ready to listen to our demands. So far, the US has remained silent in the face of a breach, and rebels are accusing them of making a "malicious deal" to remain silent.

In Washington, a State Department official said the United Sattes could not confirm the truce report, and the situation in southern Syria remained "grim" with Russian Federation and Syrian government forces continuing to bomb the area.

But on Sunday, following mediation efforts by Jordan, the team re-entered talks with Russian officers, Ibrahim al Jabawi, the spokesman for FSA negotiators said.

But the talks, in the town of Bosra al-Sham, whose Roman citadel is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, collapsed as the insurgents rejected proposed terms for their surrender, a rebel spokesman said.

The Israeli military said it took in six Syrians, including four young children, over the weekend for emergency medical treatment after their families were killed. "The terrorist groups are heading towards settlement and reconciliation", he added.

The Prime Ministry of Jordan closed the border and said that Jordan "cannot withstand the burden of hosting its Syrian neighbors, but is ready to work with the United Nations in fulfilling its duty without opening the border". Last week, rebels said the United States had told them not to expect any American military support.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said warplanes pummeled rebel-held areas with as many as 240 raids, with crude barrel bombs dropped throughout the day.
