BEIRUT: An agreement has reportedly been reached between Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblatt and the Nusra Front regarding Druze living in Syria’s Idlib.

According to local daily Al-Akhbar, the agreement calls for Idlib’s Druze to embrace Islam and destroy the tombs of their relatives. In return, the Nusra Front would stop imposing Sharia - Islamic law - on Idlib’s Druze. (...)

The report said the deal was reached after negotiators for both sides met with a UAE-based mediator from the Syrian Opposition Coalition, identified as Abu Uday.
Here is the the original report by Firas Choufi in al-Akhbar. The report provides some additional details but like often its also spiced with conspiracy theories. However, for the first time Walid Junblat's activities - which have been rumoured for a good while now - towards the hard-pressed Druze in Idlib are revealed in detail.

Some weeks ago I had the opportunity to ask Junblat personally about the Idlib Druze. He was very clear, that compromises which might limit the freedom of religion are acceptable if they contribute to the survival of the community. This stance, which is also reflected in the deal described above, might not be overly popular (not only among Druze but also Christians) but under the rule of Jabhat an-Nusra the Druze seem to have no better choice.

Last year, ISIS and Nusra forced Druze in Idlib, situated in northwestern Syria and bordering Turkey, to announce their conversion to Islam. They have also forced residents of the areas they control to live under Sharia.
