BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) officially raised their national flag over the strategic Nassib Crossing in southern Daraa this week.
According to a military report from the Daraa Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army held a flag raising ceremony at the Nassib Crossing on Sunday, which was later followed by a celebration to honor the return of this strategic site to the government.
During the ceremony, the Syrian military announced that the Nassib Crossing will be opened to the public on August 1st of this year.
This move by the government comes just weeks after the Syrian Arab Army and their allies retook this strategic Jordanian crossing from the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
Since retaking the Nassib Crossing, the Syrian government has been working to restore their diplomatic ties with the Jordanian regime.
The Nassib Crossing was captured by the Free Syrian Army’s Southern Front Brigades and Jabhat Al-Nusra during their early 2015 offensive in southern Daraa.
