BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:05 P.M.) – The US-backed rebels from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) are in serious trouble in southern Syria, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies steadily advance along the Jordanian border.

Elements of the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Corps led the way on Sunday, capturing a large amount of territory along the Damascus-Jordan border in southern Syria.

According to local journalists, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies captured border garrisons 173, 174, 175, and 176 after advancing eastward from the recently seized areas in southeast Damascus.

This latest advance by the Syrian Arab Army in southern Syria comes just shortly after rumors began to surface regarding the possible withdraw of US forces from the Tanf Military Base to an undisclosed location.

My question is what do the Jordanian authorities do with all the rebels pushed back into their territories. Do they allow them their own bases, etc. If so, are these then under US control?

Praise GOD for these continued wonderful victories and advances – for His assistance to the pro-Assad forces and their great ongoing fighting!

I really love this news site and the fact that it provides the most truthful content about Syria available, however why is it that Al-Masdar was the only news agency to report about the agreed withdrawal of US backed terrorists from southern Syria? And why isn’t this happening? This is very questionable to say the least…

Obviously the fact that there’s still fierce fighting in this part of Syria and I don’t see the terrorists withdrawing without a fight…
