BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is on the verge of being in control of all of the eastern countryside of Daraa, following several reconciliation deals with the rebel forces.

Starting with Al-Karak, the Syrian Army was able to secure a reconciliation deal with the locals of the town, which brought about the hostilities between the rebels and government in the area.

Following Al-Karak’s reconciliation, several other towns would seek to make peace with the government, including Al-Jiza and Saida.

According to a military source this morning, the towns of Busra Al-Sham and Nassib have also sought and accepted a reconciliation deal with the government; however, no troops have entered as of yet.

Both Nassib and Busra Al-Sham are high priorities for the Syrian Army’s High Command because they are located near the Jordanian border.

The two towns were captured by the Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front Brigades and Jabhat Al-Nusra (now Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham) in March of 2015.

As soon as Syrian Army troops enter these towns, the battle for eastern Daraa will have concluded.

More importantly, the Syrian Army will have secured the western border of Al-Sweida for the first time since the start of the armed conflict inside Syria.
