Syrian Army Cuts Terrorists’ Links from East to West of Dara’a
The resumption of the Syrian army’s military operation came after the ceasefire in the city ended and the Damascus government and the representatives of the terrorist groups did not reach an agreement.
The Syrian army troops managed to take control of the air defense battalion and Tal al-Sailieh after engaging in fierce clashes with the terrorist groups West of Dara’a Balad.
The Syrian troops also managed to win control over a military road in the Western Customs region and disconnected the Eastern and Western Dara’a.
The Syrian army’s artillery and missile units backed up by the country’s air force also pounded the terrorists’ military positions in Tariq al-Assad and al-Makhim camp.
The Russian Air Force carried out several combat sorties over militants’ positions in Dara’a, hitting the strongholds of terrorists in the districts of Dara’a Al-Balad and Tariq Al-Sad.
The developments came as a field commander of the terrorists named Bashar Nazal al-Mosalemeh was killed in al-Monshiyeh district of Dara’a al-Balad.
According to the reports, Syrian Army troops have effectively cut the Takfiri terrorists’ supply line to Dara’a city coming from all militant-held territories West of the Dara’a-Damascus Highway.
In a relevant development on Monday, a senior Syrian legislator underlined the possibility for extending ceasefire in Dara’a, adding that terrorists in several villages and regions in the province have declared preparedness to ink peace agreement with the government.
Jamal Hassan al-Za’abi said that the ceasefire in Dara’a was announced after the Syrian army forces gained major achievements in recent weeks.
He added that the army soldiers have gained great victories against the terrorists in the camp area and Dara’a al-Balad and liberated different regions which forced the militants to ask for ceasefire.
The Syrian MP stressed that after the ceasefire, many regions of Dara’a will join the peace agreement.
He also raised the possibility for extending the ceasefire plan, and said the terrorists violated the plan only three hours after the ceasefire went into effect, but the Syrian army doesn’t intend to respond to them at all.
Za’abi underscored that the Syrian army has decided to control the situation and keep the ceasefire, but the terrorist groups take orders from the foreign sides and are not much loyal to the ceasefire plan.
The Syrian army declared on Saturday ceasefire with the terrorist groups in Dara’a for the next 48 hours.
Al-Hadath news reported that the Syrian army’s command center has declared ceasefire in Dara’a city which started at around midday on Saturday and will last for 48 hours.
Also, AMN reported that a meeting is yet to be held between the Syrian army mediators and militants’ representatives to draw up a proper format for the ceasefire and its terms.
