BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – Footage filmed on Saturday shows the Nassib-Jaber border crossing after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) regained control over it earlier in the week.

Buses, cars and military vehicles can be seen on the Syrian side of the border, while tents, believed to accommodate Syrian refugees, may be seen on the Jordanian side.

According to the UN, thousands of people headed home in southern Syria, after the Syrian government and militants reached a ceasefire deal in the province of Daraa. The accord, brokered by Moscow, was reached after more than two weeks of intense fighting in the region, one of the last remaining militants’ strongholds in Syria.

The UN has estimated that more than 320,000 people have been displaced in the Daraa region since the beginning of an offensive in the region.

Only around 150-200 people reportedly remain at the Nassib-Jaber crossing with Jordan, as thousands returned to Syria following the ceasefire accord.

In the past two weeks, some 60,000 people had reportedly sought shelter at the Jordanian border, as fighting escalated in the area.
