Syrian Army in Control of 70 Percent of Dara’a Province
The army men continued massive operations against the terrorists in Western Dara’a and captured more lands along the borderline with Jordan to the border village of Zeizoun, moving towards al-Hayt township Northwest of Dara’a city.
If the army units capture al-Hayt, they will impose full control over the entire borderline with Jordan and extend their rule to the ISIL-held region of Hawz al-Yarmouk.
