BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a large offensive this Summer to clear much of the Jordanian border that was under the control of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their allies.

Within four months of launching this large-scale offensive, the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture more than 8,000 square kilometers of territory between the Damascus and Al-Sweida governorates of southern Syria.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army sealed the entire Damascus-Jordanian border, marking the first time in years that they have possessed control over this large patch of land in southern Syria.

With this area sealed in southern Syria, the Syrian Army and their allies will turn their attention to the Homs-Iraq border, where the U.S. Coalition forces are currently in control of the strategic Tanf Mountains.
