BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – Hezbollah social media sources have released a map showing the current territorial situation in southwestern Syria following recent offensive operations by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and other pro-government forces throughout the rocky desert expanses of the region.

The map highlights the 1,300 square kilometer area liberated by the SAA and its allies over the last week. This statistic was itself recently confirmed in a statement released by the Syrian Ministry of Defence (MoD).

As can be clearly seen, the entire Jordanian border region running parallel to Syria’s As-Suwayda Governorate has been sealed off. Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants attempted to maintain their positions along this stretch of border by throwing up a wall of artillery fire before advancing pro-government forces, however in the end it did not help them and they were forced to flee into Jordan.

How much further the SAA and its allies will develop their advance against FSA mercenaries in Badia al-Sham, if at all, remains unknown at the present time.

Why stopping at the border? Where is Jordanian army to fight these terrorists like the Lebanon’s army is? Maybe that was Jordanian army?
