BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 A.M.) – The rebel forces in southwest Syria were the target of several attacks by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) tonight, as the latter gears up for their long-awaited offensive.

According to a local report, the Syrian Army repeatedly struck the rebel positions in northeast and southeast Dara’a, causing a number of explosions in the process.

Using missiles and artillery shells, the Syrian Arab Army, including the Tiger Forces, hammered away at the rebel positions inside the towns of Busra Al-Sham and Busra Al-Harir.

While their ground offensive has yet to begin, the Syrian military often launches attacks like this to weaken the enemy’s resolve in an effort to get them to surrender before any major operation.

Regardless of the attack’s intensity, it does not appear that the rebel forces are going to agree to surrender or even accept any reconciliation agreement in southwest Syria.

Unlike the Syrian Army’s previous offensives around Damascus, their southwest Syria operation will not be facing a besieged enemy.

Many of the rebel forces in southwest Syria maintain good relations with neighboring Jordan, which allows them to have a safe haven in the area.

The level of Jordan’s intervention in this upcoming offensive is still unknown; however, they could create major problems for the Syrian Army should they provide intel and supplies to the rebels.

Personally, I expect everything from Jordan. Jordan’s king is a real example how an Arab king could become a real puppet serving other people but Arabs…

Jordan is an Israel puppet, mainly.

Jordan is in no position to create major problems for any body and may collapse into more mayhem so the following could only be something that US, SA could project from Jordan Proper and may be the straw that breaks the proverbial camels back. “The level of Jordan’s intervention in this upcoming offensive is still unknown; however, they could create major problems for the Syrian Army should they provide intel and supplies to the rebels”? Riots are continuing in Jordan over the economic situation in the Hashemite kingdom. Thousands gathered in the capital city of Amman to demonstrate, with people… Read more »
