BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has taken control of several areas inside the Al-Quneitra Governorate, today, following the evacuation of more militants from southwest Syria.
According to a field report from the Daraa Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) had taken control of several hilltops and towns inside the eastern part of the Al-Quneitra province.
The field report specified that the Syrian Army and their allies took control of Tal Ahmar Gharbi, Tal Ahmar Sharqi, Rasm Qateish, Rasm Al-Zawiyah, ‘Ayn Zaywan, ‘Ayn Al-‘Abd, and Kodanah in the Al-Quneitra countryside.
The Syrian Arab Army is now moving further west towards the border of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, as they look to expand their control over more areas in Al-Quneitra.
With Al-Quneitra nearly under their control, the Syrian Arab Army will shift their attention to the Yarmouk Basin region, which is mostly under the control of the Islamic State (ISIS).
The Islamic State affiliate “Jaysh Khaled bin Walid” has held this large portion of the Yarmouk Basin region for over three years now, with little to no threat from the rebel forces that were previously present in this part of the Daraa Governorate.
