BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies have cut all the northern supply lines to the jihadist rebels in northeast Daraa tonight.

According to the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Army cut all the northern supply lines to the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (formerly Jabhat Al-Nusra) in the Al-Lajat after another round of firefights in northeast Daraa.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian military is close to besieging the rebel forces near the Al-Sweida provincial border.

The Syrian Army is working to isolate the rebels in eastern Daraa in order to force them to surrender.

This isolation tactic has been used at several of the Syrian Army’s fronts and it has been criticized by the international community because of the sieges that are created as a result of this military strategy.

In addition to isolating the jihadist rebels, the Syrian military is using their air force to hammer the eastern countryside of Daraa.

Since the start of this week, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) has conducted over 60 airstrikes over the Daraa Governorate.

With several thousand military personnel in Daraa and Al-Quneitra, the Syrian Army is expected to kickoff this long-awaited offensive in the coming days.
