Syrian Army is going ahead with its operation in the country’s southwest, with terrorists battling the Syrian government are in a state of collapse.
Hezbollah’s war media center reported that a ceasefire started in Daraa countryside after midnight on Thursday for 12 hours, citing sources close to militants operating in the area.
The center posted on its Telegram channel several audio messages which show the terrorists in Daraa countryside screaming and blaming each others of treason.
Earlier on Thursday, Syrian Army units took control of several towns in Daraa northeastern countryside, including a strategic hill.
The War Media Center reported that Syrian Army regained control of Rakham, Al-Harak, Al-Soura and Alma towns in Daraa’s northeastern countryside.
Meanwhile, SANA news agency reported that Syrian Army restored control over Sukar strategic hill in the eastern countryside of Daraa and enhanced their positions over the hill to be used as a future launchpad of military operations against terrorists.
The agency added that units of the Syrian Army continued combing Busre al-Harir and Nahtah towns in Daraa eastern countryside after liberating them from terrorism.
The Syrian Army also foiled a terrorist attack on its posts in the surroundings of Juba village in Quneitra eastern countryside, according to SANA.
Daraa is in a “de-escalation zone” agreed last year by the United States, Jordan and Russia. But President Bashar Assad has sworn to take back every inch of Syria, and recapturing the southwest.
Vassily Nebenzia, Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, indicated that Russia would no longer uphold the de-escalation zone, saying it was among the last strongholds of al-Qaeda’s Syrian branch and ISIL terrorist groups, stressing that the Syrian army has a legitimate right to fight terrorists.
“Every de-escalation zone that we established was not established for good,” Nebenzia told a news conference at the United Nations.
