Donate

On May 22, militants operating in the town of Nahaj in the southern Syrian province of Daraa requested negotiations with the Syrian government, according to loca lsources.

Some pro-government media activists even speculated that Nahaj militants had already started to a reconsiliation process surrendering their weapons. However, this still has to be confirmed.

At the same time, reports appeared that militants operating in the settlement of Mahjeh in the same area are also ready for negotiations.

The both developments come amid reports that the Syrian military is redeploying its forces from the recently liberated Damascus countryside to southern Syria.

Earlier, General Suheil ‘the Tiger’ al-Hassan, a commander of the elite Tiger Forces, reportedly moved to southern Syria in order to manage and oversee the expected military operation in the area.

According to experts, at the first phase the Syrina military is going to contribute efforsts to rech a reconsiliation deal with armed groups controlling the southern part of Syria. However, if these efforts fail, the Syrian Arab Army and its allies will launch a military operation to defeat the militants and to force their leadership to return to the negotiation table.

        • potcracker2588

          say it as it is. JEWS.
          One cannot be a Zionist without being a JEW and believing in the Talmud.
          “all non jews are Gojim, all non-jewish women are whores”.
          Zionist was a word created by the JEWS as a scapegoat.

          • Pacificnorthwest

            But then… how do you explain the phenomena of evangelical US Christian Zionists… and the Jews (not many, but some) who have rejected and a few who courageously struggle against Zionism even within the racist state of Israel.

            Oh dear, zionism is a secular, fascist antisemite ideology; it is impossible to be Jewish and zionist. Real Jews gob on zionists for desecrating their religion and for exploiting Hitler’s murder of most of the Jewish Europeans who despised the zionist apostates.

        Assad and his Shia and Christians are not an Arab but Caucasian.
        Hezbollah and the majority Christians of Lebanon are not Arab but Caucasian.
        Iranians are not Arab but Caucasian.
        And that is why Israel is unreasonably paranoid of Iran, they know they are not dealing with people who are easily manipulated.
        Remember Iran has attacked no nation since 1780, so hopefully Israel will not be as foolish as Saddam and attack Iran.

            There was no disrespect intended for Nasrallah, or to the Lebanese Hezbollah, I give them full respect.
            My information was the Shia Lebanese were like the Syrian Shia, Caucasian.
            If my information is incorrect, my apologies.

          • Pacificnorthwest

            Ronald, why the obsession with Caucasian?

          • Ronald

            Actually I have nothing against Black, Arab or White women.
            I am obsessed with Asian women.
            Please read my response to Attrition47 of 5hrs ago.

          • Pacificnorthwest

            Asian woman, well… some Asian woman are very besutiful, so I can understand your obsession. :)

            But then… many regions and groups of people have beautiful woman, and beauty is a many faceted mystery… the planet is a veritable feast

            Too bad it is ruled by psychopathic beasts

          • DaBoiiiii

            There is no “pure” line in the Middle East. No pure Arabs (or at least vry little) and no pure Caucasians (again, only very little will be). There has been interactivity and interrelations between all groups over the past centuries that almost everyone has a bit of everything.

            There are Iraqis that have partly turkish heritage, there are iranians with part arab heritage and so on. The Syrians were ruled by the Umayads for ages, and they were from the Arabian Peninsula and traded regularly with those areas.

          • Ronald

            Personally I hold all races and peoples to be equal and equally valuable.
            My post was addressed to “zika slika”, and his racist videos.
            I may have been incorrect about the Lebanese Hezbollah, as DaBoiiii stated.
            However I do believe one of the major reasons Israel is so fearful of Iran, is they are racist, and know Iran is Caucasian.
            Israel does not want any “equals” in the neighborhood.

            The Kurds were gassed by the Sadam Hussein, during the Iraq Iran war, when the Iraqi government was being supplied and supported by the US. Rumsfield himself was involved in that, including supplying the Iraqis with chemical weapons assistance.

            By the way, I have run into a fair number of self-defined “Anarchist” idiots… so giving yourself some kind of label really means very little. It is your arguments and positions and your grounding in reality(or lack of such grounding) that matters.

            Oh and by the way… labelling me as an American ignoramus might massage your Euro-smugness and chauvinistic sense of cultural superiority, but it also is an unflattering window into how your mind works.

      we dont need declassified documents to know who created all terrorists groups not only isis kid. The root of the terrorist groups started with the zionists in Palestine, GLADIO in 1945 and continued to this day, with the exact same roots, different name same shit. In short we dont need the settlers in america to tell us whose the root of evil as they are just, convenient idiots for slaughter and I very much doubt themselves if they know where their ass from second base is, since the decision making it is not in north america. They are as I said cattle for slaughter and tax slaves, not decision makers.

    • gustavo

      We do not care what northamerican people think about the situation (believing always to the official government declarations). Who care what they declassify or not declassify, the important thing is what you know already about this situation. What is what we know ? ISIS-Daesh is a Israel-USA-NATO creation with the help of Qatar-Saudis-Jordan-Turkey countries.

    • Pacificnorthwest

      The SAA is a far more deadly military fighting force than it was before the ZioNato financed, led armed and mass media re-branded mercenary armies invaded Syria more than seven years ago.

      This has been a brutal war that the coalition of the killing fully expected to win. And for a while it was hanging in the balance, but the Syrian people, its state and its army have fought their way back against all odds, with the key help from yheir allies and are now obliterating the remnants of these once formidable mercenary forces.

      Seeing the Tiger Forces executing a fluid battle plan, coordinated across multiple fronts, responding adapting. Look how these forces and varioys Republican guard units as well demolished the highly fortified and crucially important E. Ghouta pocket. Defensive systems built up at huge capital and human cost (prisoners, un-favored ethnicities and such were used as slave labor to dig these tunnel and trench networks.) were demolished, attacked from the rear, and rendered to be tavtically unimportant. The Syrian army has become a very smart fighting force, they have beaten back what should be recognized as a coordinated invasion of Syria by a crime syndicate including in it: The US, Israel, UK, France, Saudi Arabia (+Gulf Emirates), Qatar, Turkey, and the runt member of the alliance the vassal kingdom of Jordan.

      Hezbollah and the SAA have forged an alliance tested true in blood. The two fighting forces coordinate and operate well together. While foolish Israeli racists continue to believe in the mythical seven day war… to their north are two of the hardest core fighting forces on planet earth.

      Massacring unarmed civilians inside a walled in concentration camp, as they regularly do in Gaza, may make the IDF soldiers feel like “warriors” (butchers would be a more fitting word), but these ethno-supremacist evil hearted murdering pansies of the IDF are in for a nasty surprise if Israel is foolish enough to try its hand at another ground war with the axis of resistance.

  • Smaug

    These Rebels might have just realized they’re in checkmate, or they might be buying time in order to execute a new plan.
    Unrelated; South Front’s choice to label the blue section as ‘Occupied Golan’ while all other sides are marked by their flags clearly shows SF’s affiliations. I wonder how they mark the Abkhasia, Kashmir, or Negoro-Karabakh…

    • Pacificnorthwest

      Because… drum roll… the Golan is occupied, even the United States official position on the matter remains that it is occupied.

      • Smaug

        Occupied became a buzzword during the war in Iraq. But the popular definition for it is that a foreign army to establish internal security over a country (the Iraq War). Since most residents are Israeli citizens there is no interal threat, and most have lived there their whole lives so the Golan is disputed territory like Taiwan or South Ossetia. By your definition California and Pechenga are occupied.

        Texas, Kosovo, the Houthis, the Kurds, Germany, Italy, Finland, Dombas, Crimea, East Timor, America, Somaliland, Russia, Eretria, Mexico, Cuba, and all other have histories that clearly show that treaties, laws, and ideals are meaningless when determining the physical geography of states. What matters is the allegiance of the people in it.

        • Pacificnorthwest

          Now now, don’t be going and trying to “re-interpret” the internationally recognized legal standing of the Golan with legalistic attempts to argue that it shouldn’t be.

          But it is! The Golan is considered by virtually every single nation on the whole planet as being occupied territorry. You can fart out whatever revisionist re-interpretation of legal historical fact that your indulgence in zio-crack addiction causes you to, but don’t expect others to buy into your revisionist narrative.

          The international legal standing of the Golan is well known.

          • Smaug

            Don’t talk to me like that. ‘Virtually every single nation?’ You know that’s not true. The UN doesn’t, tho.
            Also I think we’re overlooking something more important. All the other colors are marked with flags, Israel is not. This is typical among Israel’s enemies where any acknowledgement of their existance is taboo. No amount of buzzwords will change this.

            Do you why enemy’s of Israel call them Zionists? The answer is in the history and in practical psychology.

          • Pacificnorthwest

            The internationally recognized status of the Golan is that of being occupied Syrian territorry. The unilateral annexation announced by Israel in 1981 has no legal standing. These are the facts bud.

            So pack up your bag of Zionist revisionist tricks and go home.

            And you know what genius, I call Israelis Zionists, because they are Zionists. Israelis are some ofthe most indoctrinated people on earth. Israel is a Zionist political entity. The apartheid ethno-supremacist moral abomination, which you call Israel, is the cancerous outcome if a poisonous racist ideology e.g. Zionism.

    • Pave Way IV

      These towns are not really controlled by the hard-core Southern Command/US/FSA head-choppers. They are sort of left-overs from past failed rebel ‘advances’. The local rebels don’t care to die for ‘the cause’ and probably don’t want their little towns destroyed. The several thousand US-trained/supplied head-choppers apparently don’t care to hold those towns and left a long time ago. Not sure exactly where they are around Daraa or what they’re doing, but you can bet the US has some kind of evil scheme to prolong the Syrian people’s suffering.

      Time for a false-flag Sarin/chlorine barrel-bomb. Maybe the US/UK can send an invasion force of ‘humanitarian troops’ across the Jordan border. Say, all the way to Damascus. You know…. to stop Assad’s chemical weapons program or something. Or chase the IRCG away. Good luck with that!

      • Dr. Pro Liv

        All in all good comment ….but still.

        “the US/UK can send an invasion force of ‘humanitarian troops’ across the Jordan border.Say, all the way to Damascus.”

        I think that is little bit exaggerated.
        I doubt they will ever get directly involved at least as long they have those “head-choppers” left.
        Also I doubt that Russia would tolerate that in any shape or form….
        I doubt that US-UK can stomach high losses specially in airplanes.

        Agree with you specially about all kinds of dirty tricks and false-flag attacks.

    there is shortcomings in this operation, yes its good because probably reconciliation will be implemented but because the fact that Jordanian border is open probably this scum will move all heavy weapons as well as expensive weapons systems and many other things that are donated by their sponsors to safe-houses across to Jordan and present some surplus in the shape of small arms . Even worse is that foreign jihadist will not be documented ( video and other ways of intel) like in previous cases were SAA and Russians made sure they knew who they are before they allowed them to buses…. here they will just slip across to Jordan… but what can be done…clear this and prepare for real battle in del el zoir desert

      you are an average, run if the mill example of the rot of racism that permeates through zionist thinking. Please, continue… out yourself as a racist. All the IDF can do is shoot the caged in humans of the Gaza concentration camp as if they were rabbits… when the IDF picked a fight with Hezbollah, in 2006… they walked out of Lebanon on foot, defeated, in tears… along the narrow safe passage corridors the victorious Hezbollah forces allowed these broken tearful soldiers to retreat through. Keep smoking your zio-crack and harping on about wars that were gought many decades ago. The axis of resistance will chew the IDF up, they already did so in 2006.

          Nope cupcake… actual battlefield outcomes… as serious un-biased historians know. In 2006 the IDF invasion of Lebanon… or what was supposed to be an invasion, stalled out completely, as Hezbollah forces trapped tank columns in ambushes.There was slmost no movement on tge front. The Israeli tank armies failed to crack through the Hezbollah defensive lines. As this was happening the helicopter infiltrated deep behind the lines IDF special forces manned bases became isolated when Hezbollah surprised (shocked would be a better word) the IDF by shooting down high its flying re-supply and reinforcement helicopters, which were flying at above 20,000 feet. The invasion quickly collapsed and was turning into a route, when the agreements leading to tge end of this war were reached.

          But hey…go on, keep smoking your zio-crack, believing in the zionist myth making story telling machine… most zionists do. I would warn you that racism rots the soul, but you would scoff at me.

      Zionism is not a belief, it’s a gang operating on international level !

  • Pacificnorthwest

    The ethno-supremacist indoctrinated soldiers of the apartheid state rejoice with each other in their “battlefield” successes shooting people to death like rabbits inside the Gaza concentration camp, but in 2006 they walked out of Lebanon defeated. The Syrian army has become a hell of a mechanized multi-front urban battlefield capable force in the seven or more years of brutal war imposed on it. The IDF will find the axis of resistance to be a far more ferocious and capable oponent.

    I applaud the Zionist’s unbridled hubris (that they must obtain from all the murdering and brutalizing of an almost defenseless people kept under its military occupation and existing in the zionist concentration camp system, which the Israelis are the unrivaled global experts of administering)… why do I applaud this violent racist hubris, with which Israeli and diaspora Zionists wrap themselves, believing their own myth making.

    Why… because it makes them act stupidly, that’s why. You always want the enemy to indulge in a stupid ignoring of the quantifiable signals received from reality, impelled along this path of fools by their own blind arrogance and chauvinust conceit… you want them pompous, arrogant, and above all completely and utterly out of touch with reality.

      Jews are the most persecuted, expelled and genocided group of miscreants in history. Israel’s 70 year scofflaw history from it’s inception in 1948 to today. Has resulted in more UN resolutions against them for their criminal behavior by far than any other member that I’m aware of. And being one of the smallest members. Their per capita rate of condemnation for international criminality goes through the roof. It has also stripped away any vestige of victimhood and unjustified persecution that the Jews have hidden behind for 3,000 years. These people are repeat offenders who’ve done this to innocent victims over and over again throughout history.

      Judaism is a criminal organization that should be outlawed to dejudify the planet to create a Jew free world that will be much better for humanity.

    Now things are going to get interesting. We already know the SAA and allies are fully capable of clearing jihadist pockets but Daraa will be different for a number of reasons. Most important is proximity to Israel and the occupied Golan Heights.

    Israel is very sensitive to hostile troops close to her borders and has shown willingness to strike SAA and allied military targets to warn not to come to close. Obviously Assad is not heeding these warnings and the potential for a major confrontation will be high once operatons begin.

    The other difference is that the jihadists are not isolated pockets and could draw on support from Israel for supplies, arms, medical care and of course bombardment by the IDF.

    I am going to venture a guess that the quick move to liberate jihadist zones in Daraa could be motivated by the belief that Iran May soon come under direct attack. Clearing the jihadists will bring SAA, Hezbollah and Iranian military into contact with occupied Golan and the IDF. This gives a credible counter-threat against a move against Iran. As I said, how this unfolds will be interesting.

    These developments need to be closely watched.

    • Andre Lopes

      There is an entire, big, pocket to the east of Daraa that is away and buffered from the frontier with Israel. To SAA can take all this big pocket and encircle Daraa from the east and that is exactly what was reported they would do. Once Daraa is besieged from north and east and with ISIS threatening their western front, Daraa will have no option but to negotiate.

      • velociraptor

        if us troops will not send there

      • S Melanson

        Agreed although it is not a pocket, it is a salient – it would be a de facto pocket if border states were hostile, but in this case it is quite the opposite. It will be interesting to see what happens during the first phase which makes sense – reduce the eastern finger (salient). Many possibilities in this opening phase of the Daraa operation:

        Will the majority of jihadists negotiate or stand their ground or even reinforce?
        Will jihadists retreat to a more defensible southern position of the eastern finger?
        Will jihadists fight hard or half-heartedly?
        Will Israel and/or US provide indirect aid such as weapons, ammo, intel…?
        Will Israel and/or US provide direct aid such as artillery and air strikes?
        To what degree will jihadist actions be influenced by Israel/US support or lack thereof?

        How this unfolds will be very telling.

  • MeMadMax

    I would assume that the first bit of the operation would be to re-secure the southern half of Daraa city, then its off to the countryside like a rampaging bull!

  • Smrda

    Where are US, UK, France, Israel, where are the free world democracies to stop this madness and send these militants necessary support in their defense of human rights against evil Assad? Urgently send them supplies of……many many toilet paper rolls, because they crapped their tafkiri pants so brutally that there is a threat of natural disaster in Middle East!

    Hahaha, this mission will be the walk in the park (full of dog and tafkiri crap, though).

  • Criticalthinker101

    We will see if the claims that Putin got the Israeli’s to withdraw support for Golan terrorists is true – in leieu of not supplying S300, to Syria

    They will not give up easily, this territory is very important for them!

    • gustavo

      Exactly, Israel is creating a barrier of terrorists between Syria government and Goland Hights, and Israel, as always, will made a fool justification to bomb Syria troops. That is why Syria must be ready all the time its missiles ready to bring down Israel planes and missiles.

    The terrorists (what somebody call them militians) know that their death is near, there is not question about it. Syria-Hezbolah-Iran-Russia forces can finish with this terrorists pocket in less than a week.

    One poster, Zika Slika, commented that you should respect your enemies. There is truth in this statement and relevant to the ongoing debate here at Southfront.

    It could be said that Israel’s hubris and lack of respect for Hezbollah worked to Hezbollah’s advantage. Even Hitler, not known for being respectful, wrote in “Mein Kampf” of his respect for the British soldiers as a “hard lot” (Weidemann F. Hitler’s First War, 2010, p. 328). Hitler viewed German lack of respect for enemies resulted in disastrous underestimation of capabilities of the British and French in WWI and this ultimately led to German defeat.

    Strangely, Hitler made this very mistake in WWII in underestimating the Russians. I think an important lesson can be learned here. There is widespread dismissal of IDF combat capabilities given their 2006 defeat at the hands of Hezbollah as well as most of the recent experience of IDF is largely fighting ‘rock throwing adolescents’. This may be true but it should not blind us. Hitler underestimated the Russians based on correct but incomplete intel – I will not give detail here but suffice it to say it proved disastrous for Hitler when the tenacity of Russian resistance shattered German (and allied) assumption that Russia was a paper shell that would quickly collapse.

    Knowing your enemy is prudent advice as is to evaluate from a position of respect. By doing this it is far less likely to underestimate your opponents. For these reasons I think it beneficial to debate capabilities and intentions of the key players; here are a few to think about:

    While it is true that Israel was defeated by Hezbollah in 2006, I have seen little analysis on how the IDF has responded such as reforms to correct shortcomings – in logistics, command and control, intel reliability, appropriate military assets deployed and how utilized, etc… for example, Putin directed reforms to the Russian military based on lessons learned in the South Ossetia crisis. The West are seeing the fruits of these reforms in Syria and were taken by surprise by the efficiency and effectiveness of a relatively small Russian expeditionary force.

    There is also the Israeli Samson Option of nuclear deterrence. What degree of tolerance before implementing – is losing the Golan Heights sufficient? Is the option merely bluff? I would not assume bluff, particularly with a man like ‘Bibi’ at the helm. Note that there are credible reasons to believe Israel used a nuclear tipped (small yield) bunker buster recently in Syria that triggered an earthquake. If this is true, the threshold for the IDF resorting to nukes seems low.

    Even if Israeli military capabilities have degraded over the last few years, they are not alone in this fight.

    The US has forces in Syria and others such as a growing French presence that may seem small but they are part of a larger presence in Jordan and bases throughout the Middle East. Israeli News Live has reported extensively on US military buildup in Jordan and sees a singular purpose for this – take down of Damascus (in fulfillment of prophecy). Regardless of the religious overtones, what is the size and capabilities of these military assets? What are the intentions? They say actions speak louder than words and the US and several allies have been building up forces despite words to the contrary – Trump talking of US withdrawel (Orwellian speak).

    Then there is Erdogan and Turkey. No comment needed.

    Well I have said a lot already so end it here. Look forward to any comments, cheers.

    • Kell McBanned

      Im not really religious but do find the Israeli News guy interesting with his biblical stuff, it doesn’t matter if I or most others don’t believe it – if a few powerful crazies do and are working towards some fire and brimstone enter the NWO program then that’s a problem for everyone on this planet.

  • Bill Wilson

    I believe those two places are right next to the highway to Nassib and on either side of a large military warehousing complex. The militants near the highway know they’ll be the first being attacked since Assad is anxious to regain full control of the highway and the Nassib Crossing for economic purposes so may be giving up the fight so they can go back to work at their regular jobs.
