    The Syrian army started the first assaults.

    "The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a small offensive in the northeastern countryside of the Dara’a Governorate tonight.

    Backed by heavy artillery and missiles, the Taha Group of the Tiger Forces made their second attempt to capture the Air Defense Base that is located near the strategic town of Busra Al-Harir.


    According to preliminary reports from nearby Izra’a, the Syrian Army has allegedly taken control of the Air Defense Base after a fierce battle with the Islamist rebels in the area.

    Al-Masdar is awaiting confirmation from the Syrian Army regarding the alleged capture of the Air Defense Base.

    The elite Tiger Forces are heavily targeting Busra Al-Harir at the moment, as they attempt to weaken the enemy’s resolve before they make a push to capture the town."

    The forces continued but the big kick-off has yet to come.


    "The Syrian Army would take control of the Air Defense Base during the twilight hours last night; this would pave the way for their advance this afternoon.

    According to the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Army has since captured the towns of Al-Museikah and Al-Dallafa after a fierce battle with the jihadist rebels in the Al-Lajat region.

    Following the capture of these two towns, the Syrian military worked their way around Busra Al-Harir, where they managed to seize several farms near the town.

    With this advance, the Syrian Army was able to impose fire control over Busra Al-Harir, while also cutting the main supply to the rebel forces in the Al-Lajat region.

    Busra Al-Harir is an imperative town in northeast Dara’a that is located directly east of the Syrian Army’s stronghold, Izra’a.

    The jihadist rebels have now issued distress calls to their allies around Dara’a in an effort to help alleviate the pressure on their forces."

    The rebelz launched a failed attack at the occupied Golan Heights. Meanwhile, the Syrian army continues shelling them with artillery, missiles and airstrikes.

    "A source told Al-Masdar around midnight that the Syrian military had effectively cutoff the rebel supply lines from Masifrah to Al-Karak and Masifrah to Umm Wald.

    The Syrian Army has yet to make any push on the ground; however, that could change in the coming hours, as they continue to press the rebel forces in southwest Syria."

    US-backed al-Tanf "rebels" have shelled the Syrian army. The strikes was first believe to be an US airstrike. Jordan sends troops to the border. They certainly want to make sure no terrorists flee to Jordan. Although they support the terrorists, they don´t want them on their own soil. They have killed escaping "rebels" before.
    Meanwhile, the army has encircled more terrorists. They hope this makes them surrender.

    Damascus will be turned to rubble. Get ready for the encore after that.

    Thank you very much. But I have to admit they are not as excellent as yours.


    "QUESTION: Can I just – one very – extremely briefly? What makes you so sure that this is a crematorium and not just some other building? Is it this thing with the snowmelt? Because, I mean, people are going to look at this – the regime in particular or – and the Russians, who you’re – are going to look at this and say: Well, all this proves is that there is a building there and that that part where there’s – snow is melted is simply warmer than the rest of the building. It looks --

    MR JONES: So if you look – so obviously, these photos date over several years from 2013 to 2017. If you look at the earliest photo, the August 13 photo, this is during the construction phase, and these HVAC facilities, the discharge stack, the probable firewall, the probable air intake, this is in the construction phase. This would be consistent if they were building a crematorium.

    Then we look at the January 15 and we’re looking at snowmelt on the roof that would be consistent with a crematorium. So --

    QUESTION: Or just a warmer part of a building, right?

    MR JONES: Possibly."
