On July 6, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Tiger Forces, backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces, reached the outskirt of the Nasib border crossing in the eastern Daraa countryside after capturing the silos between the crossing and the city of Daraa, according to Syrian pro-government sources.
Few hours earlier, the SAA captured the village of the al-Muta’iyah, east of Nasib, after a series of clashes with the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) there. Currently, the border crossing is besieged by the SAA from the northern, eastern and western directions.
Furthermore, pro-government activists said that the SAA imposed its fire control over the key highway among the towns of Kherbet Ghazalah and Nasib.
From its side, the FSA joint operations room in southern Syrian announced that a new round of talks with Russian officials is currently taking place in the town of Bosra al-Sham. Some opposition activists reported that the FSA is ready to accept an evacuation agreement this time.
The SAA and the Russian Military Police will likely enter Nasib in the upcoming hours whether an agreement was reached or not.
