Syrian Army captures new Jordanian border points


The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their large-scale assault along the Damascus-Jordanian border, Wednesday, capturing new points from the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Led by the 5th Corps, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the last areas under the control of the Free Syrian Army in southeast Damascus, scoring a large advance after a fierce battle near the Jordanian border.

According to a Syrian military source, the SAA managed to break-through the Free Syrian Army’s lines near the Jordanian border, seizing the small town of Rajm Matetrah and several border points.

As a result of this advance tonight, the Syrian Arab Army has now reached Garrison 177 and imposed fire control over the Hamad area of southeastern Damascus.
