But much of the province - including part of the provincial capital Deraa city - still remains in the hands of rebels not willing to give up the fight.

With Russia's help, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's army has battered Daraa province for over a week with air strikes, rocket fire and crude barrel bombs.

At least eight battered rebel-held towns in southern Syria on Saturday returned to regime control under Russian-brokered deals after almost two weeks of bombardment, a Britain-based monitor said.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that at least 120,000 Syrians have fled.

"Over 150,000 people have fled to the plains near the Jordanian border due to intense strikes by the Syrian regime and its allies on cities and towns in Daraa's countryside", White Helmets spokesman Amer Abu Zaid told Anadolu Agency.

Eastern Ghouta is in that region and was taken by an assault that killed over 1,000 civilians and decimated several towns.

"The secretary general recalls that the south-west area of Syria is part of a de-escalation agreement agreed between Jordan, Russia and the United States". While in Israel said that they did not intend to intervene in the events in Syria.

Many who fled have sought refuge along the borders with Jordan and the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

But the talks, in the town of Bosra al-Sham, whose Roman citadel is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site, collapsed as the insurgents rejected proposed terms for their surrender, a rebel spokesman said.

Neighbouring Jordan says it can not afford to take any more refugees and is turning away the internally displaced at the border. They are moving in the direction of the border with Israel and Jordan.

"The (rebels') negotiating team refused to surrender and refused to accept the Russian conditions".

Speaking by telephone from Jordan Jabawi said that the meetings with the Russians took place in an area near where the provinces of Daraa and Sweida meet.

The opposition's chief negotiator in wider U.N. peace talks, Nasr al-Hariri, last week accused the United States of complicity in Assad's southwest offensive, saying American silence could only be explained by "a malicious deal".

Syria is pushing south in an offensive against rebels in the southern Daraa Province, which borders Israel and Jordan.

Russian efforts to impose a broad ceasefire in south-west Syria broke down at the weekend, prompting the Syrian regime to undertake fresh air raids.

The regime has chipped away at rebel-held territory in Daraa since ratcheting up the violence nearly two weeks ago, with Russian Federation stepping in to oversee a string of deals to retake towns from the embattled rebels.
