Putin, Syria's key ally in the almost eight-year war, cited the need to restore the situation along the Golan borders to the state that prevailed before the outbreak of the Syrian crisis in 2011.

"Truly countering the IRGC, let along removing it from Syria entirely, would require the total dismantlement of the system itself, or at least going on the offensive, reducing the Syrian government area of control", he writes.

"Syrian regime forces captured the town of Al-Hara, as well as Samlin, Al-Tiha and Zimrin", said observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman.

Quneitra also borders the Golan Heights, occupied by Israel, which has been on high alert since hostilities ramped up in the south almost a month ago.

Syrian government troops have intensified shelling in the southern province of Quneitra, which borders the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights, on Sunday and seized part of the area, a war monitor said.

Talks to hand over Nawa, one of the most densely populated towns in Daraa province, have been ongoing for a couple of days.

Their terms also typically include the mass transfer of thousands of rebels and civilians to opposition-held Idlib, in what rights groups and activists say may amount to forced displacement. The city of Daraa was the cradle of the uprising against Assad seven years ago.

Israel has said it will not allow any refugees to cross its border, trapping the fleeing people between the Israeli border and advancing regime forces.

The deal for Daraa city is the latest in a string of such agreements the regime has used to retake large parts of the country.

Starting early Wednesday, a series of barricades on the road leading into the town were removed to let dozens of vehicles in, an AFP correspondent there said.
