BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The U.S. State Department issued a stern warning to the Syrian military on Friday about launching a new operation in the southern provinces of Syria.

State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert stated that the U.S. is prepared to take “firm and appropriate measures in response to Assad regime violations.”

However, this warning does not appear to have any affect over the planned military operations, as reinforcements from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued to pour into the Dara’a and Al-Quneitra governorates.

A military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News on Saturday that the Syrian Army is poised to launch this offensive and will do so in the coming weeks.

The source added that negotiations are underway with the rebel forces in Dara’a, but no progress has been made thus far.

Should the rebels refuse to reconcile with the government, the Syrian Army will launch two separate attacks in the Dara’a Governorate, with the primary concentrations being the provincial capital and Nassib Crossing.

So the US is now dictating whether or not the Syrian Government should clear terrorists from their Sovereign Territory 🙂 Including the ISIS gangs who are directly on the Israeli line of contact with Syria.

Situation is a bit different in Dara’a : most of the area is held by Southern Front, they’re not very into fighting against SAA but have cleared many ISIS areas. I think they renounced any fight against SAA in 2014 if I remember well, probably in may or june.

Looks like the US, unlike putin, do not want to see this escalate into a larger conflict. There are so many other avenues to pursue like rebuilding a viable infrastructure that are more positive. Or demanding Iran/hezbollah to leave Syrian territory with a hearty thank you. Their continued presence alongside their belligerent dialogue of killing every Jew is not going to help Assad or his country or his people rebuild.

BS The US do not want this war to be finished, as it would be if the Syrian government regains control over its entire territory, just like the government of Vietnam did. They want to keep the state of “frozen conflict” and remain able to warm it, whenever they need.

Actually, Monty, you’re wrong about Putin : 1.) He’s NOT AT ALL an Hezb fanboy, Russia even voted Hezb disarmament at the UNSC! 2.) Despite being Iran-friendly, he also deemed Iranian attitude towards Israel as intolerable and counterproductive In fact, you come exactly to the same conclusions as Putin and… so do I. For sure, you’ll have the habitual bloodthirsty haters that will turn bonkers every time they read anything positive about Israel (it’s even why I love to pi$$ ’em off) but these are not seeing further than their own noses. The war has to cease and the Mid-East… Read more »

Let’s make things simple : IRGC and Hezbo are asked to leave Syria while Yankees cut any support in Dara’a+al-Tanf and pull all the proxies they or GCC control out… And I bet that Assad can call Netanyahu about it and he and AIPAC will lobby as hëll for such result!!!! That’s a non-zero sum game, in other terms, a win-win situation for the 3 actors! And it will spare thousands of casualties and damages! Moreover, FSA/South-Front are NOT into jihadism, they near totally ceased to engage against SAA about 3 years ago concentrating on fighting ISIS and they’re secular…… Read more »

South Front fought together with Jihadi in their offensives in Dara’a city. Thought it is true that they all fought IS.

UNSC disarmament resolution is only valid for armed militia in Lebanon. Though it might be true that formally joining SAA would take the wind out of US and Zionists sails.
