BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – One day after the Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s interview with Al-Alam, his highest ranking general was sent to southwest Syria to inspect the forces before any offensive is launched.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), Defense Minister Major General ‘Ali ‘Abdullah Ayoub traveled to southern Syria this morning to not only inspect the troops, but also, celebrate ‘Eid Al-Fitr with the soldiers in Dara’a.

Maj. Gen Ayoub was briefed by field commanders on the combat operations of the army and armed forces in the area, stressing on the importance of combating the remnants of militants.

The top Syrian general often makes trips like these before the Syrian Army launches new offensives.

However, despite the massive build-up of troops, the Syrian Army has postponed their offensive in order to continue reconciliation talks with the rebel forces.
