BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – With Ramadan concluding on June 14th, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies are getting in position kickoff their long-awaited southern Syria offensive

Several of the Syrian Army units participating in this offensive were given a short leave to spend part of the holy month with their families; however, they have since been ordered to deploy to southern Syria, as the peace talks with the rebels went sour after a short while.

In particular, the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces and 4th Division have been sending their units to the Dara’a and Al-Quneitra governorates each day, as the holy month draws to a close.

For the Tiger Forces, the southern Syria offensive will be their first real test, militarily, since the East Ghouta operation in April.

The Tiger Forces have been tasked with retaking the southern part of Dara’a city, which has been under the control of the rebels for several years.
