Uncle Sam wants to save his terrorists.
Nice Assad propaganda.
Certain sources claim that Israel now cleared its' position with Russia, regarding Iranian activity -
North, East and West are now viewed the same as the South.
I think Syria has realized that the Russians use them to force themselves into the Western community. The South has been a de-escalation zone since they started. Israel has never recognized the zones. But that doesn´t mean that the Syrian military cannot launch operations there. Terrorist groups and everyone operating with them are EXCLUDED from the de-escalation. "Rebels" sitting somewhere and drinking tea won´t be attacked. But the area is under Nusra control and that means that the zone doesn´t exist. If the Russians try to help saving the terrorists, thus prolong the war forever, Syria will have no choice but to invite Iran to the south.
We have seen there are now tensions between Iran and Russia. Russia demanded Iran to leave Syria but Damascus said no, they can stay.
You're only now coming to the realization of what was obvious from the beginning.
The situation was always much more complicated than what Assad propaganda lead You to believe.
Assad allies have been pushed to make hard choices about each other. I'm not sure You understand the magnitude of the situation. I told You it was never about Assad and none of his allies really reckon with him.
You don´t understand the situation. I support Assad and the Syrian people in their existential struggle. There is something wrong with those who don´t. Especially Israelis affected by Hamas terrorism should understand this. If the Russians move away, if the Iranians move away, then I will still support Syria. That´s the difference between me and the Trumpsters who are suddenly very silent about the Kurds.
"Rebels" are attacking in Daraa, will "guarantor" Trump use force against them as announced?
Battle for Daraa intensifies as rebel forces launch attacks against Syrian Army
Here´s how the offensive will look like:

Meanwhile in the north:
Syrian choppers flies over Turkish military positions, demands militants surrender in Idlib
"FSA" is negotiating a ceasefire with ISIS ahead of government offensive.
Rebels, ISIS reportedly negotiate ceasefire in southern Syria town ahead of Syrian Army offensive
"Rebel" given few days to surrender.
"The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has officially given the rebels in the Dara’a and Al-Quneitra governorates until the end of Ramadan to surrender or else they kickoff their long awaited offensives.
According to a military report, the Syrian Army informed the rebels that they have until June 14th to give them an answer; they will not give them an extension.
The rebels have already stated that they are not interested in a reconciliation deal with the government, so the likelihood of them surrendering on June 14th is very slim."
Syrian Army gives rebels until June 14th to surrender in southern Syria
The army was not idle but deployed thousands of soldiers and prepped up the airdefense. They also postponed the offensive to give the "rebels" more time. But now a reconciliation delegate was assassinated and that resulted in retaliatory strikes.
