Currently, the Syrian-Russian delegation and representatives of local militants are negotiating a possible reconciliation deal in the area. The deal would allow Syrian government forces to restore control of the area and would allow militants to settle their cases or to withdraw to other militant-held areas.
However, if the deal is not reached, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies will be forced to implement a military option. In this case, the Nassib border crossing and nearby areas will likely become the first target of the SAA advance.
As always, government forces will rely on massive artillery and air strikes and the advantage in military equipment.
On May 23, Iran officially annouced that its forces will not participate in the operation. Thus, Israel will have no justifications for its possible strikes against the SAA in the area.
As soon as the Nassib border crossing is liberated, government forces will focus on militants operating near the occupied Golan Heights.
