While the key powers involved in the Syrian conflict is negotiating a possible deal to de-escalate the situation in the southern part of the country, local militant groups are actively preparing for a battle against the Syrian Army.
Since first reports on a possible military operation by government forces in the area, militant groups have establsihed a unified military command and started deploying reinforcements on the contact line with the Syrian Army.
The militants’ activity has also increased in the area of the city of Daraa which is expected to become one of the main battlefields in the upcoming military standoff.
According to photos and vieos appearing online, militant groups in southern Syria are well armed and pose a high number of vehicles with installed weaponry. All these weapons, equipment and supplies arrive Syria through the militant-held bordercrossing.
If a peaceful solution is not found, government forces will have to put an end to illegal arms and munition flow to the country retaking the border by force.
