In New York, Sweden's U.N. mission said Sweden and Kuwait had requested the U.N. Security Council be briefed on Thursday on the "deteriorating humanitarian situation in South West Syria".

Mr Safadi said his meeting with Sergey Lavrov would produce more understandings and would "take us more steps forward to contain this crisis and prevent more destruction".

Israel has also said that it will not let in any refugees.

Bombing by the Syrian government, backed by Russian Federation, has broken a months-long ceasefire in rebel-held areas of southwest Syria and displaced residents are becoming stranded in ad-hoc camps near the borders.

More than 30 towns have already agreed to return to regime control and talks were focused on remaining opposition territory in Daraa's western countryside and the southern half of the city.

Syrians fleeing the fighting and heading towards Jordan have been denied entry, with authorities there saying they do not have the resources to deal with more refugees.

But other opposition bodies have rejected the deals.

The Syrian army started the operation against the rebels in Daraa over 11 days ago, with the aim of entirely capturing the rebel-held areas due to the strategic location of Daraa near Jordan.

A week ago the global organisation said that 160,000 people had been displaced.

He can, therefore, expect to come up against not only Hazard but also Thibaut Courtois who will nearly certainly man the posts for Belgium .


Malkawi said the United Nations was awaiting the "right time" to begin distributing aid in accordance with the world body's working principles.

The strategic area was ostensibly protected by a ceasefire agreed by the US, Jordan, and Russian Federation just under a year ago, but President Al Assad is dead-set on retaking it.

An opposition source from the south with close knowledge of the talks said Russia's piecemeal approach to the deals had hamstrung the negotiating committee.

At least 330,000 people have recently fled Syria's southwestern city of Daraa to areas near the Jordanian border due to fierce attacks by Syrian regime forces, the United Nations said Tuesday.

The state media said the military operations are going in tandem with the reconciliation efforts, which explains the situation where several towns accepted the entry of the Syrian army without battles.

Rebels and residents say a string of rebel towns have reached their own surrender arrangements that have allowed Russian military police to enter and patrol their towns.

The hand-over process in Busra al-Sham is expected to be completed on Tuesday, said SANA.

"The time has come for the conscience of humanity to wake up after the greatest crime in history is being committed against the Syrian people", he said in a statement on Sunday.
