Militant groups and alliances in southern Syria have declared an establishment of the Central Operations Room in order to plan and carry out military actions against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies. The establishment of the alliance was announced late on June 20 by the Southern Front of the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
On June 20, the SAA and the Tiger Forces captured the villages of Musaykah and al-Dallafa northeast of the city of Daraa. Thus, they cut off the only supply line to the militant-held area – the district of al-Lajat – north of these two villages.
The Syrian military had deployed a significant force, including assault units and battle tanks, in the province of Daraa. Thus, it’s able to create advantage in fierpower and manpower over militant groups on important parts of the frontline. The northeastern Daraa pocket is likely the first target of such efforts.
