The Syrian Arab Army and its allies have liberated an area of 8,000km2 and taken control over the entire Jordanian border with Rif Dimashq Governorate, the Syrian state-run media outlet SANA reported on Tuesday.
According to SANA, government forces fully cleared the area from terrorists. However, these reports have still to be confirmed.
If the report is confirmed, this will allow the army and its allies to free a signficant force that could be used on other frontlines across Syria.
The ISIS-held city of Mayadin and the T-2 Pumping Stations are obvious targets for the government operations.
