Syria's southern province of Daraa, which could be the regime's next target after its bloody reprisal of Eastern Ghouta, is the birthplace of the uprising which erupted in 2011 .The regime reacted brutally, jailing them, and according to activists, torturing the boys.Back in the province's main town, which has the same name, demonstrators attacked symbols of the regime, before the protest movement spilled over into neighboring towns.Daraa province is one of the last centers of rebel forces in Syria, after they lost vast swathes of territory to the regime.Daraa town, the regional capital, is mainly in the hands of pro-government forces.The province has regularly been the scene of fighting between regime forces and insurgents.
