DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:16 A.M.) – Just a day after the US airstrikes that targeted a convoy of SAA and allies reinforcements heading to the Tanf front, the Syrian Army would continue its advance in east Damascus capturing the Research Center located south of Zaza Junction that lies along the Damascus-Baghdad Highway.
In a parallel development, the Syrian Armed Forces alongside allied paramilitaries like the Arab Tawhid Party captured the village of Zuluf alongside hundreds of square kilometers along the Syrian-Jordanian borders following yesterday’s seizure of Zuluf Dam from the Jordanian-backed rebels.
The most recent advances in southern Syria have not only made Suweida province almost entirely insurgent-free, but have also enabled the Syrian Army to reach the heart of the Levantine Badiyah. An assault on the strategic Tanf region could be propelled from Suweida province as other army units strike from eastern Qalamoun to liberate the Damascus-Baghdad Highway.
Should the Syrian Armed Forces rid this area from the presence of the foreign-backed FSA forces, they would be in prime position to strike al-Mayadeen and Al-Bukamal in conjunction with another government offensive on Deir Ezzor from Palmyra and Ithriya axes in eastern Homs.
Anonymous sources embedded with the Syrian military also hinted to AMN that the government forces intend launch massive military drills and maneuvers inside the recently dominated desert space- drills that are rumored to rival the large drills of 2013: a show of defiance and strength aimed to prove the existence of a formidable Syrian Arab Army after 7 years of brutal warfare.
