BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has taken control of more territory in the western countryside of the Daraa Governorate, today, following the withdrawal of the rebel forces from the Tafas area.

Led by their Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army announced on Friday that their forces had imposed full control over the Tafas Dam after the Free Syrian Army (FSA) troops withdrew further west towards the large town of Nawa.

The dam itself is located directly west of the recently captured town of Tafas, which was surrendered by the rebel forces earlier this week

With Tafas under their control, the Syrian Army is now preparing to storm the western countryside of Daraa, which is where the rebels plan on making their last stand.

The Syrian Army and Russian Reconciliation Center have reached out to the rebels in order to broker a possible peace deal; however, there has been little progress at the towns of Nawa, Jassim, and Tal Al-Harrah.

Tal Al-Harrah is the primary target for the Syrian Armed Forces, as it overlooks much of western Daraa and southern Al-Quneitra.

If captured in the coming days, the Syrian Army will be able to force the rebels in Al-Quneitra to agree to surrender.
