BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – The flag of the Syrian Arab Republican has been raised over the Sweida-Jordan border for the first time in years, following the Syrian Arab Army’s massive advance in the province on Wednesday.

Journalists were granted full access to the Syrian-Jordanian border this morning to watch the military raise the Syrian Arab Republic’s flag over several recently captured crossings.

Many of these crossings were once used by the Syrian opposition and Islamic State (ISIL) to illegally enter Syria; they will no longer have this luxury after the recent government advance.
