DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:25 P.M.) – Nearly a fortnight after launching its full-scale offensive to reclaim all rebel-held territories in Daraa, the Syrian Army has so far controlled over 72.4% of the southern province; securing the Damascus-Amman highway after recapturing the Nassib border crossing.

Aside from the liberated territories and impressive military gains, the Syrian Army has seized unbelievably huge quantities of weapons handed over by militants after entering into surrender agreements with the Syrian government.

Rebel arsenal include the 2nd generation of TOW missiles along with other types of ATGMs, Sam Cobra missiles, tanks, BMPs, RPGs, IEDs, mortars, tanks and artillery shells,  as well as ammunition of various types.

The arsenal, compiled in an airbase for the Syrian Army, was inspected by the commander of elite Tiger Forces, Major General Suheil al-Hassan, who spearhead the assault in the eastern countryside of Daraa.

And that is why Saudi Arabia and the Emirates need higher oil prices. Backing rebellions and wars in Libya, Syria and the Yemen costs a lot of moolah.
It involves recruiting, training and paying jihadis/mercenaries, purchasing weapons from Britain, France and the USA; supplying them with weapons and medical supplies; fees for British/French/USA air cover & blockade support, etc.
