Southern Syria: Terrorists Preparing for Large-Scale Attack on Syrian Army with US Back up
The Arabic-language al-Watan daily quoted Khalid al-Faraj, the Commander of Tajamo Towhid al-Ummah affiliated to the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA), as saying that the terrorist groups are preparing for an imminent large-scale operation against the Syrian Army troops in Dara’a to further assist their militant comrades that are under heavy attacks by the Syrian army men in Eastern Ghouta.
He further told al-Watan that the terrorists’ attack will kick off in the next 48 hours, adding that the offensive will start from two flanks: one by the South Coalition towards the Death Triangle and another one by al-Jeidro Coalition towards Khirbet Qazala and Azra’a.
The terrorists’ preparation for the operation came after the US deployed 200 more troops in al-Tanf base at Syria’s border with Jordan that is home to the Joint Operation Room of the US and the FSA.
Also, a number of British Army officers have been dispatched to the border between Syrian and Jordan.
Field sources reported on Sunday that the army forwarded a large number of fresh forces and a large volume of military hardware to the Southern province of Dara’a as the terrorist groups were preparing for an imminent operation against the government forces in the region.
The sources said that a large number of fresh soldiers and military equipment were sent to the regions that were under the army’s control in Dara’a.
The sources went on to say that most of the army soldiers deployed in the neighborhoods of Shamal al-Khat, al-Sahari, al-Matar, al-Sabil and al-Soqour were put on alert amid the army’s preparation for an imminent operation in Dara’a.
The army’s move to send more troops to Dara’a came after the Free Syrian Army (FSA) terrorists started plans to storm the army positions in Dara’a to provide back up for their comrades in Eastern Ghouta in Damascus province.
The Syrian army is advancing rapidly against terrorist groups in Eastern Ghouta.
