It doesn’t look like there is going to be a ceasefire in Syria anytime soon; this was confirmed on Tuesday morning, when the Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) announced their latest offensive in the Dara’a Governorate that is dubbed “Death Triangle”.

The “Death Triangle” refers to the large area of land in northwestern Dara’a that forms a triangle between the villages of Tal Al-Harra, Deir Al-‘Adas, and Al-Sinamayn – the latter two villages are under the control of the Syrian Arab Army.

In particular, the Islamist rebels will attempt to retake the area east of Kafr Shamis; this territory was lost to the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division, Hezbollah, and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard during a winter offensive in early 2015.

Among the groups participating in this offensive are the following: Liwaa Al-Furqan, Al-Majless Al-‘Askiri in Al-Quneitra, Jaysh Al-Yarmouk, Jabhat Ansar Al-Islam, Jaysh Al-Sibteen, Firqa Fajar Al-Tawheed, Liwaa Seif Al-Sham, Jaysh Al-Ababeel, Liwaa Mujahdi Houran, 24th Division, Hamza Division, and Jabhat Thuwwar Al-Souriya.

Yesterday, the Free Syrian Army’s “Southern Front Brigades” – backed by Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) – attempted to capture Al-Samadaniyah Al-Sharqiyah in Al-Quneitra; however, they were reportedly repelled by the Syrian Arab Army’s 90th Brigade of the 9th Armored Division.

New offensive yes but will they be able to sustain hostilities. The best would be to hold the areas they already have. This is good for SAA as attack required twice as much manpower and they loose a lot. Besides what will the RUAF be doing all this time. SAA has close air support and that will be good to see these bastards grilled from the air
