BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – A rebel commander told the Reuters News Agency on Tuesday that the Syrian military will face “volcanoes of fire” if they launch their long-awaited southwest Syria offensive.

“Everyone is on guard. We are still committed to the de-escalation agreement but if the regime launches any attack on any sector of the south, it will be faced by volcanoes of fire,” Nassim Abu Arra, commander of one of the main Free Syrian Army groups in southern Syria, the Youth of Sunna Forces, said.

The rebel forces have mobilized their forces in southwest Syria to protect their territories, but they are facing one of the largest Syrian Arab Army (SAA) attacks of the war.

For the Syrian military, this offensive is meant to not only secure southern Syria, but also the strategic highway from the Jordanian capital of ‘Amman.

Since losing the Nassib Crossing in southeast Dara’a to the jihadist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (now Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham), the Syrian government has not had a direct roadway to the Jordanian capital.

The capture of the Nassib Crossing will be one of the top priorities for the Syrian Arab Army’s offensive.

Yanks will do false strikes on SAA, SAA will pretend false losses to make all these believing they have air support, so they don’t rush for safety into Jordan, which itself is ready to machinegun anyone trying to cross the border and SAA will actually finish all those refusing to lay down their weapons = real fanatics…
Good riddance.
