    BEIRUT - Tension is rising in southern Syria due to renewed political and socio-economic protests in the region of Daraa, a former anti-regime stronghold which is now under Russian and Syrian government control, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The monitoring group said that over the past few hours a march was organized in the city of Umm al Mayadhen to ask for the release of prisoners held in government prisons and to limit the role of the Syrian security services.
    For months the campaign of Daraa has shown signs of a political uprising against the government and Russian mediators.
    Violence and armed clashes were reported over the last few weeks.
