BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – The battle for southern Syria is quickly approaching, as the deadline for the rebel response to the government’s reconciliation expires in the next 24 hours.

According to a military source in Damascus, the rebel forces in the Dara’a and Al-Quneitra governorates were given until June 14th to provide the government with a response to their reconciliation request.

However, the rebel forces in both Dara’a and Al-Quneitra have already expressed their unwillingness to reconcile with the government, as this would surely mean that many of their fighters would be forced to leave these provinces.

Despite the response from the rebels, the Syrian government is likely to extend the deadline for their response, if there is a legitimate attempt among the armed groups to reconcile.

Previously, a rebel group in the Al-Quneitra Governorate expressed interest in reconciliation with the government, but they were later attacked by their former allies.

Final Preparations Made

For the Syrian Arab Army, they are fully prepared to launch their assault in Al-Quneitra.

An officer from the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Division told Al-Masdar earlier this week that their forces and missile launchers are all in position to launch their assault in Al-Quneitra.

This operation in the Al-Quneitra Governorate will be led by the 4th Division’s elite 42nd Brigade (Ghiath Forces), who have already led several prior offensives in the East Ghouta, Beit Jinn, Al-Zabadani, Darayya, and Khan Al-Sheih.

The 42nd Brigade arrived in Al-Quneitra with their newly developed “Golan-1000” missile launchers, which played an imperative role in the battles for the East Ghouta and southern Damascus.

Dara’a Battle

While the Al-Quneitra operation is all set to launch, the Syrian Army’s Dara’a offensive is expected to be launched a few weeks later.

The reason for the delay in the Dara’a operation is due to the fact that not all of the Syrian Army’s reinforcements have arrived yet.

More importantly, the Dara’a Governorate operation will be much larger and more complex, which makes the manpower a necessity.

It is indeed an imperative battle to exterminate once for all the Ahl Al Sunna in Syria and for revenge of Saudi led offensive to Hudaideh, Syrian Arab Army should make no mercy even against civilians, exterminate them ! It is also for the sake of humanity.

If the westerners would make noise with chemicals fake, no step back, the axis of resistance Syria-Iraq-Iran-Lebanon-Russia should start WW3 and bomb Mekka, Medina, Jerusalem, London, Paris, Washington. And everyone know that the leftshit west will lose this war.

West will not lose this war. We all gonna lose that war. I do not wanna struggle for life in nuclear wasteland just because you and all like you are impatient. The point is to balance and stand still while waiting for your moment because this giant like all the giants before it will collapse by himself…
