BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing to launch their largest offensive this seven year long war, as their troops descend on the southern provinces of Al-Quneitra and Dara’a.

With their recent victory in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army has freed up thousands of troops that will be used for the upcoming southern Syria offensive.

Among the troops being redeployed to southern Syria are the following:

  • Tiger Forces
  • 4th Mechanized Division
  • Republican Guard (104th, 105th, 106th brigades)
  • 7th Armored Division
  • 9th Storming Division
  • Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary)
  • Palestine Liberation Army (PLA)
  • National Defense Forces (NDF)
  • Arab Nationalist Guard


According to a military source in Damascus, the first part of this southern Syria offensive will concentrate on retaking the Nassib border-crossing.

Once the Nassib crossing is secured, the Syrian military will work to clear the Lijat region in northeastern Dara’a.
