The Syrian government’s efforts in promoting reconciliation and amnesty to Syrian militants who took up arms against it has paid off. Babbila, Yalda, and Beit Sahem are three towns in the Damascus countryside that recently had reconciliation between their militants and the Syrian Army.
These deals included agreements on ceasefire, lifting of siege, allowing food and aid to get in, and the giving up of weapons – in most cases – in exchange for the residents raising the Syrian flag.
In Babbila, videos of the armed Islamist militants standing side by side with the Syrian Army might have seemed strange a week ago; however, today, this presents a sliver of hope that there might actually be a way out of this conflict, if all Syrians work together to get their country back.
