Syria's army on Thursday entered rebel-held parts of the southern city of Daraa for the first time in years, state media said, raising the national flag in the cradle of the revolution.

"Syrian army units enter Daraa al-Balad and raise the national flag in the main square," the official news agency SANA said, a day after a deal was announced for that rebel-held neighbourhood and others in the city.
