BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15) – Another large batch of government reinforcements have been deployed to the southeastern countryside of Damascus to participate in a future operation near the Iraqi border, a military source told Al-Masdar News on Sunday.

Reinforcements from the pro-government Palestine Liberation Army (PLA), Fatah Al-Intifada (Palestinian paramilitary), and the Shadi Regiment (NDF unit) arrived in southeast Damascus, Sunday, after receiving orders from the Syrian Army’s High Command.

The reinforcements will be tasked with protecting recently captured areas in order to relieve the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Corps in the region.

With the ongoing ceasefire in southern Syria, it is unlikely that the Syrian government forces will launch another large-scale offensive in this area anytime soon; however, the High Command in Damascus is taking precautionary measures to protect their territory in case the US-backed rebels launch an attack.

YES! And also to protect Syria from Iranian expansionism too. Shia theocracy has sharia too. It’s not better than Sunni sectarianism. Russians have the clear goal to maintain Syria as independent, thus no more becoming a lackey to Riyadh than to Tehran, thus they have serious levers with Tehran while it’s not the case with the al-Saouds. Now remember that Russian economy compares to Spain ad with about the same population, this means about less than the quarter of FrancoGermania.
