Syrian Army on Alert for Dara’a City Liberation Operation
The army forwarded a large number of forces and equipment to Dara’a city after its advances in Eastern Dara’a and liberation of Nasib border-crossing.
Field sources reported that the army is preparing for an imminent operation to liberate Dara’a city.
The sources further said that only a few villages in Eastern Dara’a are still under terrorists’ control and the region has militarily fallen into the army that controls almost 95 percent of Eastern Dara’a.
A few groups of ISIL and the Al-Nusra front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) are still operating in Southern and Western Dara’a and some other terrorist groups are active in the Northern part of the province.
On Saturday, the army troops imposed control over almost 95 percent of Eastern Dara’a after government forces drove terrorists out of Nasib border-crossing.
The army men managed to capture the strategic Radar and Air Defense Battalion Bases in Basar al-Harir region East of Dara’a city after they imposed control over Nasib passageway at the border with Jordan.
The army soldiers also freed several regions and townships in Eastern Dara’a, including Samad, Samaj, Arz al-Atrash, Tisiya, Khirbet Qolo, Abu Qatouneh, al-Mashafi, Abu Ra’as, al-Samaqiyat, al-Aman, Neda, Maqtala, Khirbet al-Qouta, Khirbet al-Deir and Khirbet Ma’araba.
