The Syrian Civic Platform monitors violations in Daraa province, which have been subject to Russian-brokered settlement agreements with the Government of Syria (GoS). This report is the fifth report that monitors the situation in Daraa after the GoS took control of the province.

The GoS committed a number of provocative actions in the province during March. The most notable is the re-installation of a statue of former President Hafez al-Assad in the Tishreen square in Daraa to coincide with the ninth anniversary of the popular movement which began in the province in 2011. This action led many civilians to take part in demonstrations on March 10, in the following towns and neighborhoods: Daraa al-Balad, al-Sad, al-Mokhayam, Tafas, al-Sora, al-Hirak, al-Yadudah, Tasil and al-Sanamayn.

In addition, arrests continued in several areas of the province, and armed groups of unknown orientation emerged as the Popular Resistance.
