BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had a productive day in southern Daraa on Thursday, as their troops managed to capture a large chunk of territory along the Jordanian border.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began their assault by storming the southern countryside of Busra Al-Sham.

This attack would catch the rebel forces off guard, as the Syrian Army pushed into southeast Daraa from their positions in neighboring Al-Sweida.

With the rebels falling back, the Syrian Army was able to sweep through a number of towns, including Samad, Samaj, Taysiya, Muqtalah, Nada, and Al-‘Amman.

In addition to seizing several towns, the Syrian Army also took hold of several border points after the rebel forces withdrew further west towards the town of Al-Mata’yah.

According to a military source in the government stronghold of Izraa, the Syrian Army captured several border garrisons from point 67 to point 71.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army found themselves in control of approximately 230 square kilometers in southeast Daraa.

More importantly, the Syrian Arab Army is on the verge of clearing the entire Sweida-Daraa axis for the first time since the start of the armed conflict inside Syria.

Yes great indeed! Not so sure that Israel will see it that way though as all the terrorist outfits get rolled up by assads forces and expose the area around the Golan heights. I’m not sure why the Israelis are more worried by the Syrian troops on the border than the mercenary terrorists of Hayt al sham etc who’ve been happily holed up there for several years, even isis has a base there. It is well documented that Israel supplies weapons and medical aid to these terrorist groups along the Golan border and never attacks them. Perhaps with your knowledge… Read more »

Oh i see. So the terrorist/ mercenaries are in fact enemies of the Syrian state but are not the enemies of Israel who supply them with arms and medical support, so by proxy are an extension of the Israeli military.The whole world is trying to eradicate ISIS/daesh/al nusra or any other title you want to give them in the middle east with the exception of Israel.Israel is everybodys enemy then. Thanks for clearing that up for me johnny, it all gets so confusing does’nt it !
