BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:05 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army has launched wide-scale operations across southeastern Syria, today, targeting the last positions of the US-backed rebels in the Damascus and Al-Sweida governorates.

While operations began in Al-Sweida, the Syrian Arab Army quickly followed up this offensive with a major attack in the southeastern part of Damascus, striking the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) positions near Al-Seen Airbase.

According to Al-Masdar field correspondent Ibrahim Joudeh, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies have already captured the Makhoul Mountains, Makhoul Dam, Al-Sees Mountains, and Risha Dam.

Joudeh added that the Syrian Arab Army is pushing into rebel territory from two different axes, while also fortifying these recently captured areas.

It’d be useful to know +/- what groups hold what area as there are hundreds. I doubt this area was held by US-backed ones or else, SAA would have gotten air-strikes. Even when Obongo was still here, ties were cut with many groups.
I feel situation is pretty more complicated than said.

Obscure Al-Qaeda affiliates undoubtedly that are not part of any truce. Else there would be Western complaints or more as You say.

p.s. Not all rebels are US backed – and the SAA takes the opportunity to mop up little supplied insurgent groups.
