The Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) are off to a poor start in the Dara’a Governorate this year, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies have captured several sites that were firmly under rebel control last year.

On Friday morning, the Islamist rebels received some more bad news inside the provincial capital of the Dara’a Governorate, as the Syrian Arab Army’s 15th Brigade of the 5th Armored Division – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – seized the Old Customs Building that is located just 200 meters east of the Jamrak border-crossing into the Kingdom of Jordan.

Following the capture of the Old Customs Building near the Jamrak Border-Crossing, the Syrian Arab Army’s 15th Brigade halted their advance in favor of the Syrian Arab Air Force’s powerful airstrikes that fractured the Islamist defenses by destroying the Free Syrian Army’s heavy weaponry.

The Jamrak border-crossing is located inside the Al-Manishiyah Quarter of the Dara’a Al-Balad District; it was originally captured in 2013 when the Islamist rebels launched a large offensive at the provincial capital of the Dara’a Governorate.

Should the Syrian Armed Forces retake the Jamrak border-crossing, they will finally have a border point with Jordan.

    • That’s funny man, you can’t even kick out rebels out of your country and you think you can handle a U.S. and Khaleej supported Jordan. Go home man, we’ll wipe you off the map

    • and by the way the Syrian Arab Armed Forces are doing a mighty fine job internally. If the same aggression was unleashed on Jordan or any country for that matter they would last only months

    • besides there’s a new boss in the middle east, his name is Vladamir Putin, since His arrival in Syria all you poo jabbers have had to shut your mouths, from obama down

    • Lol don’t call us poo jabbers or anything… We aren’t with anyone, they just support us due to our strategic position in the region and the only country that still isn’t politically corrupt or any other thing. And Putin a boss, I didn’t quite get that. When you’re the second strongest country in the world and a country shoots down your fighter jet you are supposed to destroy it, NOT what Putin did.

    • Take a closer look at what the Russian Airforce has done to the Turkmen in northern Syria. Take a real close look at the destruction of oil trucks and refineries .. and the list goes on. Also while your at it look at the progress the Syrian Army has made along the Turkish border and in the south along the Jordanian border.

      Also it’s a known fact the Jordanian “puppet king” authorised the murder of his own uncle to assume power

    • Also up until now the general Jordanian public has largely sat silent over the past 5years, the truth is majority of Jordanians support Syria’s struggle against terrorism, this will become plain to see if the Jordanian Army have the courage to cross into our border with intention to clash with the SAA.

      Even the Jordanian military top brass are watching the Syrian Army with amazement believe me

    • I have nothing against Syria… We are probably the most country that helps you guys. But we are the only ones who don’t listen to anyone and act accordingly to the safety of our country only. Ofcourse it’s normal to have coast guard to a war torn country, threats are 24/7.

    • Utter rubbish. The Jordanian government ‘helps’ Syria with nothing and regardless the Syrian Government will never accept Jordanian help, not while there is US troops and hardware, training camps and war rooms in Jordan who’s job it is to relay live satellite information to Jordanian intelligence operatives working alongside the terrorists.

      Several Jordanian army commanders are in Syrian Government custody sitting inside jail cells while the others have been killed in Syrian airforce strikes.

      While the Jordanian people largely remain true to their roots your leaders have sold their soul like the turks to the saudi petro-dollar, this isn’t new news like i said the Syrian leadership have always known your leaders to be of corrupt and pro-west nature
