Moments ago in the provincial capital of the Dara’a Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Dara’a City – imposed full control over 8 building blocks in the Dara’a Mahata Quarter after a series of intense firefights with the Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army’s “Southern Front Brigades”.

According to a military source inside the city of Dara’a, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division and their allies seized 8 building blocks that were situated to the east of the College of Physicians and directly south of the Dara’a Bus Station; these aforementioned sites are all located near the strategic Dara’a National Hospital that is located at the southern sector of the Dara’a Mahata Quarter.

In addition to their advance at the Dara’a Mahata Quarter, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division is also advancing towards the imperative city of Busra Al-Sham after imposing full control over the village of Khirbat Samar in southwestern Sweida.

Should the Syrian Armed Forces recover the historical city of Busra Al-Sham in southeastern Dara’a, they will be in position to recapture the border-crossing into Jordan and several little villages that lead to Al-Jiza and Al-Hirak.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
