BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – A large convoy consisting of military personnel from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces reportedly left the Daraa Governorate, yesterday, for nearby Al-Quneitra, a local source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the large military convoy was redeployed from eastern Daraa to the northern countryside of Al-Quneitra, where they will prepare to launch a new offensive against the jihadist rebels in the southern part of this province near the occupied Golan Heights.

Below is a video of the NDF heading towards Al-Quneitra:

The source added that the convoy consisted of mostly military personnel from the National Defense Forces of Al-Sweida, Damascus, and Izraa.

In the coming days, more units from the Syrian Arab Army will move towards the Al-Quneitra Governorate, as they have already captured most of the Daraa Governorate from the rebels.

As of now, their elite Tiger Forces are preparing to kickoff the last phase of the Daraa offensive, which is geared at capturing the entire western portion of the province.

However, this operation could be limited because the Islamic State affiliate “Jaysh Khaled bin Walid” currently controls the entire southwestern countryside of Daraa.

The Syrian Army will likely retake the rebel-held areas first and then completely isolate the Islamic State pocket before they launch their major operation to eliminate the terrorist group from the Yarmouk Basin region.
