Syrian government forces, led by Druze militias and members of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) military wing, have regained a large chunk of the Syrian-Jordanian border from the joint militant forces supported by the US-led coalition.
Government forces have reportedly captured a major part of the Zalaf area east of Suweida and continued advance in order to increase pressure on US-backed militants in the border area of al-Tanaf.
No major settlements are located at the Syrian-Jordanian border. Thus, if the US-led coalition does not use force against Syrian troops, the Syrian Army, the SSNP, Druze militias and other pro-government units will likely reach the southern countryside of al-Tanaf without heavy clashes. Jaish Maghaweer Al-Thawra, a main US-backced militant group operating in the area, just does not have enough manpower to stop the government advance.
