The regime concluded its nearly two-month long settlement of status operation in south Syria, with settlements including more than two dozen towns and cities across south Syria. Although more than 12,000 individuals have settled their status, the regime’s ongoing presence in these settled areas remains limited and inconsistent with the regime withdrawing its forces from a number of recently settled areas. With the return of commercial traffic over the Nassib crossing to and from Jordan, the regime has offered increased attention to the south. In a rare visit by regime Prime Minister Hussein Arnous to Daraa, Arnous committed to spending nearly $1 million in local projects across the province—a total that, when distribute across the province, is woefully insignificant given the current infrastructure and services crisis in the south.
