Syrian Army seizes new points along Jordanian border
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their offensives in the southeastern countryside of Damascus, targeting the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) last positions along the Jordanian-Damascus border.
Backed by Hashd Al-Sha’abi (Iraqi paramilitary), the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Legion attacked garrisons 171 and 172 in southeastern Damascus this morning.
The Syrian Army units and their allies managed to overrun the Free Syrian Army’s defenses and impose full control over these garrisons, further expanding their presence along the Jordanian border.
With this latest advance, the Syrian Arab Army has inched closer to the imperative Tanf Border-Crossing, which is currently occupied by the U.S. military in the southeastern countryside of the Homs Governorate.
