Dara’a, Syria – Reinforcements from the Syrian Arab Army’s battle-hardened Republican Guard have arrived to the government-held portions of the provincial capital of Dara’a ahead of a major offensive intended not only to clear Manshieh district from jihadist presence, but to also secure the entire city.

Needless to say, the operation will include capturing the adjacent Jordanian border-crossing which reputable sources report will be opened soon for commercial use between the two Middle Eastern nations. 500 especially-trained storming troops will form the piercing head of the offensive.

On the other hand, jihadist rebels find themselves occupied in a terrible conflict with ISIS-linked Jaish Khalid Ibn al-Walid in Hawd al-Yarmouk region in western Dara’a where ISIS managed to almost double its territory while rebels busied themselves with their stillborn offensive in Manshieh district.

Over 300 rebels were reportedly killed over the past week fighting the Syrian Army and ISIS in Dara’a in addition to hundreds wounded. ISIS is now less than a kilometer from Nawa, the largest rebel-controlled city in southern Syria.

    • The last moderate SFA jointed the Qaeda terrorists who will soon abandon them. What a strange suicidal idea. These losers will claim Assad created and sent IS to help SAA. LOL.

      p.s. Who sides with terrorists deserves death.

      • Who sides with terrorists deserves death.

        I agree fully. France, UK, USA, Germany, Qatar, Saoudia, UAE should think about that, before claiming iran support terrorism.
        France was sending weapons to the killers, like a number of others countries. bad, very bad 🙁

        • I cannot remember when Germany sent weapons or money to terrorists. So why should we think about it?

          p.s. Except that Erdogan thinks that the weapons Germany gave the Kurds were given to terrorists.

        • Supports NOW, well, it’s a little complicated. There were some changes for sure but there are still people with serious powers that have serious records and still i.e offer $7k to anyone managing to assassinate someone of an ethnicity he and his bigot buddies curse all day long because of some stupid hadith…

          Now, let me laugh about weapons sales. Let’s be clear : weapons don’t kill! It’s those who use them that are doing it! Or not! Anyway, if you don’t sell, someone else will do and if nobody does, these will DIY hellcannons etc, even AKs or SMGs and if not possible, they’ll use knives, machetes, sticks and stones.

  1. The article is well written.

    It is time to focus on Daraa city but I don’t think the SAA will capture it entirely. Military it can, but politically it can’t. I don’t like false hopes. Few months ago, the SAA started a similar offensive with Russian supports but did suddenly stop. It seems someone is pressuring the SAA to keep the status co in Daraa. Thus, I think the best scenario atm is only the capture of the whole Manshieh neighbourhood.
