Syrian Army fires artillery at rebel positions in As-Suwayda province (Source: Syrian Arab Army).

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army has resumed their artillery strikes on the Jaysh Al-Izza town of Al-Zakah after the militants remained inside the demilitarized zone.

According to a source near the front-lines, the shelling came in response to the Syrian Arab Army’s calls for the militants to immediately withdraw their forces from the demilitarized zone.

He would add that the militants are not likely to abandon their posts inside the demilitarized zone, as some of these areas are important militarily.

However, a short while ago, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham announced that they were willing to comply the ceasefire, but warned they would attack if a single shell fell into their territory.

Despite the tit-for-tat attacks, the Syrian and Russian air forces have remained absent from the skies of northwestern Syria.

These air forces will likely remain grounded until there is a clear indication that the militants will not withdraw from the demilitarized zone.

El objetivo debe ser eliminar a todos los terroristas y expulsar a los turcos junto a sus mercenarios, con negociaciones sólo en un futuro Erdogan va pedir su anexión del territorio Sirio, hay una mala experiencia con Altos de Goulan en sur de Siria por parte de Israel… Parece que el gobierno Sirio no aprende la lecciones del pasado, la ofensiva debe continuar hasta alcanzar la frontera Turca.

This is beyond idiotic. Every time the Syrian army gets on a roll they stop and allow the terrorists to fortify their defenses.
