Syrian Army Retakes Control of All Border Regions with Jordan, Fully Cleanses Badiyeh in Sweida


The Syrian army on Thursday regained control of all joint bordering areas with Jordan in the Southeastern parts of Sweida as well as the entire Badiyeh (desert) region in the same province.

The army forces continued advance in the Southeastern parts of Sweida, and won back control of the 154th and 143th border posts and several other points along the border with Jordan.

Meantime, the Syrian army cleansed all points and bases at the common borders with Jordan and seized back control over all the Badiyeh region in Sweida.

A military source also said that the army has gained back control of a 4,000-sq/km of lands since the start of the operations in Badiyeh region in Sweida since last May.

The Arabic-language AMN quoted a military source in Southern Syria as saying earlier today that the Syrian army and popular forces has recently captured a 57km of land along the Jordanian border, forcing the Free Syrian Army fighters to do mass retreat to Jordan.

Pro-gov’t forces are in control of territories between the 134th, 139th, and 151st border-garrisons in Sweida province as they managed to control the entire Sweida-Jordan border.

In a relevant development on Tuesday, the Syrian army troops stormed ISIL’s defense lines in Southeastern Sweida and imposed full control over a region 100sq/km in area.

The army units engaged in tough battle with ISIL and pushed them back from Tal (hill) Asadi, Tal Jarin, Tal al-Rayahin and Ba’ar al-Sabouni region and later continued their advance towards Ba’ar al-Sawt.
