BEIRUT - Syrian army units have begun a "gradual withdrawal" from Deraa, an official military source was quoted as saying on state news agency SANA on Thursday.

The source said the army had completed its mission to "chase elements of terrorist groups ... and to restore security, peace and stability".

The army had stormed Deraa, cradle of a six-week uprising against President Bashar al-Assad's rule, ten days ago.
