BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The rebel forces in Daraa told the Reuters News Agency on Monday morning that their troops are currently besieged inside of the provincial capital.

“Abu Shaima, a spokesman for the opposition in the city , said several thousand people were now encircled after the army pushed into a main base west of the city without a fight before a formal evacuation of rebels opposed to a Russian-brokered surrender deal,” the Reuters report claimed.

The Syrian Army was able to besiege Daraa city after they captured the air defense base and the large hilltop that overlooks this site to the west of the provincial capital.

Since besieging the provincial capital, the Syrian Army has moved more forces to Daraa city, as they prepare to launch their long-awaited attack on this area.

This offensive at the provincial capital is expected to be the largest attack of this offensive, as thousands of soldiers are preparing to storm the rebel defenses in the southern part of the city.

Expect the zio-liberal MSM to start whining about a “humanitarian catastrophe” in Daraa. Like no siege of DeirEzZor was there, like there is peace and prosperity in Yemen…

Actually, if you take a look at the whining MSM’s shareholders, oh surprise, you’ll find petrodollar rich Qataris or Saudis, e.g. AFP (Agence France Press) is a Qatari puppet for a while now… If you take a look at real Zio medias, you’ll be in for a surprise! Hey : Goys killing Goys! It’s not their problem! They don’t give a fück! In some ways, they’re more neutral than any other until they’re not implied.
