BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:05 A.M.) – The battle for southern Syria recently heated up following the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) large-scale assault on the eastern countrysides of Al-Sweida and Damascus.

Led by the 5th Corps of the Syrian Arab Army and Liwaa Fatemiyoun (Afghani-Iranian paramilitary), the pro-government forces have captured hundreds of square kilometers of territory that was once controlled by the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their allies.

While the battle for the southeastern territories continue, the fight for the provincial capital of Dara’a has stalled, as all parties involved agreed to a ceasefire that was mediated by Russia, Jordan, Iran, and the United States (U.S.).

With the Dara’a front remaining stagnate, the Syrian Arab Army has move its elite 42nd Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division to Damascus, where they will either resume the offensives at Beit Jinn or Jobar.
