DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5: 00 P.M.) – The long-awaited battle for the southern province of Daraa has just begun with the Syrian Army carrying out heavy aerial bombardment on rebel hideouts.

More than 20 airstrikes have been conducted since early morning, along with scores of the improvised, highly-destructive Elephant surface-to-surface missiles that have rocked the rebel stronghold of Daraa al-Balad and al-Sad Road.

The government Army has been mobilizing forces to initiate a full-scale offensive against jihadi groups in Daraa in bid to secure the government-controlled parts of the provincial capital.

A military source said the ground invasion might be carried out any time soon as final preparations were concluded with the arrival of the Army’s elite 4th Division.
