BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their Jordanian offensive this morning after taking a brief hiatus to allow for their soldiers to rest.
Using heavy artillery and missiles, the Syrian Army pounded the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) defenses for nearly two hours before they began their ground assault.
Led by the 5th Corps’ infantry units, the Syrian Arab Army overpowered the Free Syrian Army fighters at several sites near the Jordanian border, paving the way for the government forces to capture Rudwat Al-Sheikh, Al-Darifah Canyon, Ruwdat Al-Salibiyah, and Garrison 164.
The total area captured by the Syrian Army is approximately 200 square kilometers, making this one of their largest gains this week.
