BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – For the first time in several weeks, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has attacked the jihadist rebel defenses inside the Al-Lijat region of east Dara’a, the 5th Armored Division reported this morning.

According to their report, the Syrian Army heavily shelled the defenses of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in the Al-Lijat region.

Furthermore, the Syrian Army’s attack was meant to fracture the front-lines of the jihadist rebels before they launch their long-awaited offensive in southern Syria.

The Syrian Army has already mobilized thousands of soldiers to participate in the upcoming southern Syria offensive; however, the majority of these troops have deployed to the Al-Quneitra Governorate and Sheikh Miskeen area of Dara’a.

This long-awaited offensive is expected to begin in the coming days, despite ongoing talks between the U.S., Russia, and Jordan.

Good start of the start, now keep it up for a week and it should demote
them somewhat.

Russia will try in every way to prevent the Syrian government forces from taking back Daraa because it was one of the signatories of the deal that virtually handed that Syrian province to the Zionist proxies.
