BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:17 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies have restarted offensive operations against Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants operating in Syria’s southwestern desert region.
Today, the SAA and other pro-government forces advanced towards the Jordanian borders against FSA militants, securing the Dabiyah canyon area and its nearby hilltop as well as the Wadi al-Sawt canyon area; both sites are located south of the Zuluf Dam.
This comes renewed offensive effort by the SAA and its allies comes after FSA militants launched an attack on SAA positions in the area. The entire nature of the pro-government operation is retaliatory.
Thus far the SAA has advanced five kilometers today and military sources say that the offensive will continue until pro-government forces secure Syrian-Jordanian border area south of Dabiyah.
